Baby’s First Cheesy Noodles

Spaghetti is one of my favorite foods to feed a baby. They love the chewy texture, and I love how I can prepare it differently each time to favor their needs. This pasta has been a favorite with my kids. They love the creamy sauce that pairs with the pasta, and I love that it has a secret hidden veggie inside!

Baby’s First Cheesy Noodles

Ingredients

  • 2-4 oz. angel hair pasta noodles
  • 1/2 sweet potato, chopped and steamed
  • 1 tb. butter
  • 2-4 tb. milk
  • 2 tb. parmesan cheese
  • Sprinkle of nutmeg

Instructions

  1. Begin cooking the pasta noodles according to the package directions.
  2. Add steamed sweet potatoes to Baby Bullet Blender. Add a few tb. of the steamer water, or just plain water, to the blender. Blend until it becomes a creamy puree.
  3. Heat a small cooking skillet, add butter. Once the butter is melted, whisk in 3 tb. of the sweet potato puree. (Save the extra puree for baby feeding later or to make more pasta sauce!)
  4. With the heat on low/medium, whisk in the puree, then slowly begin to whisk in the milk. (The more milk, the thinner the sauce.)
  5. Sprinkle in the parmesan and nutmeg, and then whisk until it’s a creamy sauce.
  6. Turn off the heat.
  7. Drain the pasta, add the noodles to the sauce and toss.
  8. Serve or store in the fridge for 1-3 days.
