need ideas for pasta filling...

My 8mo db won't let me spoon-feed him and for the most part will only eat foods that he can hold in is fist -- rusks, strips of toast, steamed carrot sticks, sticks of banana etc. He'll eat whatever I spread on the rusk or toast, such as cheese. He'll also eat from a whole peach, pear or nectarine, but only if I hold it for him.

I've been trying to figure out a way to expand his repetoire and have thought of something that might work but I need your help as I'm not at all a creative cook...

I've bought tube shaped pasta which are just the right size for him to hold. I'd like to stuff them with something that will ooze out when he chews and sucks on the pasta. The filling needs to be thick/sticky enough not to drip out but not so thick/sticky that he won't be able to suck it out and swallow it. Any ideas???

dumb question, i know, but just blend the chicken and corn without adding anything else?

riccota and spinach, maybe with a few bits of ham? (We have it with crispy bacon when I do cannelloni but that might be too salty)

tuna/sweetcorn and mayo

Stir cream cheese into pretty much any pasta sauce - makes it thick and sticks to the pasta. Also put strips of veg into the sauce, so he can pick those up too.
