When your baby will have his first teeth (usually around 9 months) you can start preparing pasta for him. With Luca I started with “baby shapes” (in Italian “pastine”): smaller version of the traditional pasta. You can always use regular size pasta and then cut it in pieces (…you will just need more time!). For today’s recipe I’m using spinach and zucchini; I really like this mix and not only for the amazing deep green final color.
It tastes sooo good, it’s creamy and spinach are an amazing source of iron.
In addition to that I have to say that when me and my husband are in a “light dinner” mood, this recipe works very well for us….with the addition of a good handful of grated pecorino cheese on top.
I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we do and let me know what you think!!
