We're currently trying to get DD1 (12 months) to eat more of our home-cooked food rather than jars/pouches etc.
We had some success this evening with spaghetti bolognese & I'm now feeling more motivated. The thing that I struggle with is adapting our recipes so that they are more suitable for DD e.g. no/less salt/alcohol etc.
She likes a lot of food seperately IYKWIM but isn't great at eating much of complete savoury meals.
So tomorrow, I want to attempt some kind of cheesy pasta bake type thing for us all (yes I know some people frown on pasta bakes but I don't care ). I have chicken, broccoli, cauliflower, peas, carrots, onions, mushrooms, peppers, pasta & ingredients for a cheese sauce + other store cupboard stuff.
Can someone suggest a simple recipe? I'm having a bit of blank as also have a 2wk old DD!
There are loads of recipes online for broccoli chicken pasta bakes, but my initial instinct would be to use your favourite macaroni cheese recipe and swap out half the weight of pasta for the broccoli and chicken. (if you don't have one, there are quite a number on the bbc food website, and this one is very good, though you will have to do a couple of imperial to metric conversions: www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Macaroni-and-Cheese-239270)
Could try pasta with bacon, mushrooms and peas...and then maybe peppers stir-fried with some mince, since you've had some spag bol success?
