CREAMY TOMATO PASTA

SUITABLE FROM 6 MONTHS

2 PORTIONS 1 ADULT 1 CHILD / PREPARE 5 MINS / COOK 20 MINS

This is one of our favourite “go to” quick meals and pasta is always a hit isn’t it?!

The super quick and flavoursome sauce comes together while the pasta cooks and it is so creamy and delicious! It couldn’t be any easier!

I like to add a sprinkling of hemp hearts to amp up the protein and serve alongside veggies to create a balanced meal.

Ingredients

1 cup pasta of choice

1 tbsp avocado oil

1 heaped tsp minced garlic

A large handful of spinach, finely chopped

A handful of basil, finely chopped

1/4 cup tomato sauce or sub passata (I always have a stash of my homemade veggie sauce in the freezer)

A pinch of pepper

1/4 cup full fat cream cheese

A splash of milk

Instructions

Cook the pasta according to the packet instructions.
Heat the oil in a pan and sauté the garlic  for a couple of minutes. Add in the spinach and basil and cook for a couple of minutes.
Pour in the tomato sauce and cook for a few minutes.
Then add in the cream cheese and pepper. Stir until smooth and creamy. Add in a splash of milk if the sauce is a little thick.
Drain the pasta and add to the sauce, stirring well.

The veggie loaded tomato sauce recipe is full of vitamins and minerals and adds a great nutritional boost to this meal.
