Toddler Recipe: Butternut Squash Pasta

28 July 2020

Emmy is really loving pasta! Which I've never been able to get Kate to eat. I don't want to keep feeding her mac and cheese or something similar so I've been on the hunt to find/make my own recipes. This is my second shot and she's LOVING it! 

You might remember the spinach pasta that I made a few weeks back. It was a huge hit! Which got me thinking, what other veggie can I work into past that she will love. And when I say pasta, I'm actually using orzo for these. It seems to be the right size for her right now. And it's egg-free. 

The recipe is super simple and I really just kind of tried something that ended up working. So I'll recap as best as I can. Enjoy! 

2-3C butternut squash (I use frozen for this and thaw)
2T milk
2T cheddar cheese
2T Parmesan cheese 
2C pasta of choice
1T fresh thyme 

Cook pasta according to package directions. Combine the squash, milk, and cheeses in a food processor. Blend until smooth. Stir the sauce over the cooked pasta. Take liberties as you see fit, sometimes I only use one type of cheese. 

PS. this (along with the spinach pasta) freezes great! I make a huge pot and then freeze and pop out for school and/or dinner.
