Beetroot pasta for kids

I am not a pasta fan so pasta is mostly cooked only for my son. I keep experimenting with it because I know when it’s pasta, he will never say no 🤣 Added beetroot to the pasta and it turned out well. He has been enjoying pastas ever since he started eating independently (from 8 months on wards), so glad we invested in one high chair when he was 7 months old and it has helped us in so many ways.¬† The recipe is super simple and healthy as well. I added cheese to my portion and lots of chili flakes. This is a good way to include veggies in their diet and makes an excellent meal especially on their food rejection days. I mostly prepare this using durum wheat pasta but you can always choose to use pasta of our choice. Make it for your kids or your family, I am sure they will love it.

Ingredients:

1 cup cooked pasta of your choice
1 medium roughly chopped beetroot
1 small roughly chopped carrot
3 garlic, Grated or chopped garlic
Salt to taste
Pasta seasoning to taste
Freshly ground pepper powder to taste

Method:

Cook beetroot and carrot in a pressure cooker. Once the lid opens, puree them. Now in a pan, take butter, add chopped garlic sauté for a few seconds, add beetroot carrot puree along with salt and seasoning. Mix and cook for a minute or so and add cooked pasta to it. Mix and cook for a few more minutes and switch off the gas. Done. Serve it with grated cheese or just like that.

Notes:

Don’t add too much water while pressure cooking beetroot and use that water to make puree.
