This is a really tasty recipe I got from my Baby Purees book. I tasted this after making it and thought it would be great for the older kids as well. It has a great flavor and is so healthy. I added alphabet pasta for my 10mo old baby. It could easily be used with any pasta. I didn't have any mascarpone when I made it but I do think that would give it great flavor.

  1. Heat the oil in a saucepan, add the onion and garlic, and saute for about 3 minutes. Add the carrots and saute for 4-5 minutes. Add the zucchini and saute for 2 minutes, followed by the mushrooms, sauteing for 2 minutes. Add the fresh tomatoes and the butter and saute for 2 minutes. Pour in the can of tomatoes and half the juice. Finally add the stock, sugar and basil and season with pepper to taste. Cover and cook over medium heat for 10 minutes. Then blend to puree.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the pasta according to the package instructions until tender, but without adding any salt. Toss the cooked pasta with the sauce and marcarpone (if using).
