Pasta Sauce for Toddlers

Pasta sauce has always been a huge favourite in our house. We could literally serve this up every day, and there would be no problem with everyone eating this up. The sauce is filled with tasty soft roasted vegetables cooked together on a single tray. Then blended making it really easy for smaller babies to eat, along with the garlic gives it a really yummy flavour. I know your baby will love this as much as mine does.

Roasted Vegetables for baby led weaning

All of our recipes contain a lot of key ingredients for baby led weaning. We know the roasted vegetables will have lots of healthy benefits, and all these roasted vegetables combined help make the sauce really rich and delicious for babies and grown-ups too.

  • Aubergines: This super ingredient contains so many minerals, like magnesium, and vitamin B complex an essential nutrient for babies. It also contains loads of fibre, which benefits digestion. Aubergine recipes contain lots of health benefits for your growing baby.
  • Courgettes: These are a source of a mineral called potassium. Potassium helps to keep our muscles working properly so we can move around and a great source of vitamin C and folic acid.
  • Oil: For this recipe I used olive oil. Olive oil is one of the best oils you can you give your baby. It is loaded with monounsaturated fatty acids and is a great source of healthy fats for your baby.
  • Garlic: The garlic in this recipe is roasted which makes it really easy for your baby to digest.
  • Cannellini Beans: These are a great source of protein and iron too.

Baby Led Weaning Tip

We always like to share our baby tips with you all. Once I have made the sauce, any extra I love to store in an ice cube tray ready for another day. This way you can pop out a little cube of sauce when you want an easy dinner for your baby, quick! The frozen ice cubes melt quickly at room temperature or you can add the frozen cube to a small saucepan and heat up. Frozen into ice cube tray will last for 12 months or even stored in a sterilised jar in the fridge for 5 days.

How to make baby’s first pasta

This is such a simple recipe, it starts off with getting all of your chopped up vegetables onto a baking tray. Then pour over the olive oil and roast the vegetables for 25-30 minutes until they are soft and just make sure the aubergine is golden. With the garlic just loosen the outer skin of the bulb, slice the top and place on the baking tray. Then when you take it from the oven using a spoon press the bulb of garlic to remove the soft flesh, then discard the empty skins. Add all of the vegetables and garlic to a blender along with the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth and silky.

Serve Baby’s First Pasta to the whole family

It makes our life’s so much easier if we can serve the whole family with one recipe. So for adults we recommend that you season the pasta sauce when you are ready to serve this. So this way you have food for your family and your baby too!
