Creamy Seafood and Broccoli Pasta

When it comes to comfort food, there is no better belly cuddler than a good creamy pasta recipe. Luckily, I found a fantastic 3-for-2 deal on Dunnes Stores Seafood Mix and frozen veggies and created this delicious, easy family dinner idea that is a deal baby led weaning meal. I’ve been so excited to share this one! It’s inexpensive, loaded with vegetables and Omega 3s, and it’s freezer friendly. A complete, easy family recipe that everyone in the house adores makes for a very happy chef!

This pasta recipe is one of my go-tos for my newly weaning babies. It’s packed with yummy, vitamin C, A, and K rich broccoli and kale, and the spaghetti is so much fun for food play. These veggies are nice and tender, so no need for teeth, but you can always cut it into smaller pieces if you’re concerned. Either way, I definitely recommend keeping a few wipes close by — creamy goodness can be a little messy sometimes!

Tots and preschoolers will gobble this tasty dish down in stride — it’s a great opportunity to learn the spoon and swirl etiquette we pasta recipe lovers must perfect before moving into adulthood.

As a freezer friendly pasta recipe, doubling up for quick school lunches and fast, nutritious dinners on busy nights is super simple. Just store your extras in serving-sized plastic baggies, wrapped well, then add a little milk to thin out the frozen sauce as you reheat in a skillet, and viola! Beats a TV dinner any night, and it takes less time than grilled cheese.

I also love this meal as a quickie for when the kids are away. My husband and I are both pasta and seafood fans. This beauty tastes like a recipe straight out of a cafe, so it’s a perfect in-house date night — in our pjs, on the sofa, chocolate on stand-by, of course.

Seriously, this is our family’s favorite “fancy” pasta recipe. It’s great for any occasion, and packed to the brim with essential Omega 3s and beautiful veggies that can easily be frozen for later. As a busy momma with a passion for delicious food (that’s also convenient), this one’s definitely a winner!
