Cheesy Broccoli Pasta Recipe for Toddlers and Kids

Cheesy Saucy Broccoli Pasta is my first recipe with Broccoli on the blog I believe. Broccoli is a powerhouse of nutrition, but I have not cooked for more than 5 times in all six years I hope. This is because it is a seasonal crop and not a local variety. We don’t get it all over India, all through the year. Of all the dishes I have tried with broccoli, I love the creamy soup and this pasta recipe

P.S

I missed clicking the step by step pictures.

Ensure that the sauce doesn’t thicken much.

Low flame and continuously stirring are the keys for the right sauce.

You can add a drop of oil while boiling pasta.

Gently toss and don’t stir vigorously after adding pasta and broccoli to the sauce.

If you find the sauce very flowy, add broccoli+pasta to the sauce and cook for a minute.

Consult with your doctor before offering any new food to the baby.

Consider the family history of allergies before introducing any new food to baby

Be sure to have eliminated doubts of allergies of each ingredient before offering this to the baby.

Skip salt if the baby is below one year.
