Pasta Carbonara

Age: 5th month of eating (egg friendly)

Not suitable for freezing

Makes 1 generous serve

Prep Time: 2 minutes

Cook: 10 mins

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup dried soup pasta or other small pasta shape (about 1/2 - 1 cup of cooked pasta if using leftovers)
  • 1 boiled egg
  • 2 tsp ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup cooked peas
  • Generous sprinkling of Parmesan cheese

Notes

Variations:

Swap the peas for the carrot and zucchini vegie mix from page 73 of the Food Babies Love Book – adds colour and sweetness.

Sauteed mushrooms also work brilliantly – 2-3 button mushrooms finely chopped and sautéed with a small amount of butter. These can be additional to or instead of the peas.

As your baby gets older, consider adding some finely-chopped ham to any of the vegie combinations.

Method

  • 1

    For the pasta: Bring water to a boil in a small saucepan and cook pasta according to packet directions. Drain.
  • 2

    To boil an egg: Place a room temperature egg in a small saucepan and cover with cold water. Set your timer for 10 minutes and place over medium heat and bring to a boil. When timer goes, you should have perfect hard boiled eggs. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  • 3

    Cook green peas according to packet directions; the microwave is the easiest option.
  • 4

    In a good sized bowl, place ricotta and peeled boiled egg. Mash together with a fork and stir in cooked pasta, peas and cheese.
