Every time I prepare pasta, I can totally see that this baby is mine. She loves pasta, she loves everything about it – The Best Farfalle Ragout.
For easier serving and less mess everywhere, smaller shapes are better for babies, in general.
Fusilli, Farfalle, Penne are my baby’s favourites (check out the link for The Pasta Shape Dictionnary). Ragout can be done from any kind of preferred vegetable or meat. Pasta Time!
Total Time: 20 minutes
1 adult portion of desirable pasta (I used Farfalle)
4 cherry tomatoes, washed
1 large carrot, peeled, washed and chopped around the middle part
1 small aubergine, washed, cleaned and diced
Cheddar Cheese and fresh basil to finish
Add all ingredients in a medium pot of hot boiling water. Tomatoes, carrot, aubergine and Farfalle Pasta. Mix from time to time and cook until al dente. Cooking in the same pot gives pasta a beautiful flavour.
Next, place the vegetables (tomatoes, carrot and aubergine) into a hand blender with 2 tablespoons of pasta hot water. Blend until a very smooth paste.
Place 2 handfuls of Farfalle into a plate, cover with good amount of the sauce. Finish with Cheddar Cheese and fresh basil. The rest of the sauce and pasta refrigerate for the following days, separately.
Makes 3 baby serves.
