Baby Spaghetti

bsWhen my boys were babies I came up with a simple recipe for a mild pasta sauce that I served on Angel Hair. I called it Baby Spaghetti. They loved it. And now I am sharing it with you.

Baby Spaghetti
2 cups prepared pasta – think tiny for a little baby with little to no teeth
3/4 cup tomato sauce – I used some with Italian Herbs
1 tbsp basil
1/4 cup grated Parmesan

1. Heat the tomato sauce with the basil and Parmesan and combine it with the pasta.
2. Serve to a cute little baby with a fun little plastic spoon (or no spoon at all) and watch them love every bite.

The sauce is reminiscent of a Margherita sauce. If you are making this for adults, add some garlic and onion and maybe some mozzarella. Maybe even a little white wine.

My kids looked at the pasta, wondering what it was. They haven’t had this exact pasta since they were babies so they didn’t remember it at all. I enjoyed telling them it was the first pasta sauce I ever made for them. They didn’t seem interested in my heartwarming story. I think they wanted to know why there was no meat.
