Toddler Veggie Packed Pasta

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by missykett

If you have a picky toddler, you know how difficult lunch options can be! I decided to whip this up with what I had on hand. You could omit or add items as you please....I like the veggie/calcium combo! Alphabet pasta is also a good alternative for babies Store the leftovers for two days and serve as a side or meal!

Great idea for fussy toddlers, a good way to sneak veggies into them. I halved the recipe and only used a tiny bit of olive oil. I only had broccoli, carrot and corn so I used that, but you could use any veggies you have in the freezer really. Thanks for this recipe!
