A Meal Everyone Will Enjoy

I made one of my stand-by recipes last
night – a creamy fettucine with asparagus I got from href="http://www.everydayfoodmagazine.com" target="_blank">Everyday
a couple years ago (which, by the way, is a great
magazine to subscribe to, since they try to do seasonal foods and
under 30 minute prep times – way more realistic than Martha
Stewart!). And I realized once again what a great meal it is, and
why it’s on my short list: it can feed older babies and
finicky toddlers, but has a taste adults love as well; and
it’s got veggies built in, so all I have to do is add a side
of fruit and we’re done. I divided up the meal for Cora
– pasta, cut-up asparagus, and peaches all finger-friendly on
her tray – but left it mixed for Maddie to fork “all by
herself” in a bowl. Both of them cleaned their plates.

So I thought I’d share the recipe
with you – the link is pasted below. The recipe calls for
goat cheese which is great if your toddler has dairy allergies, but
I use a kid-friendly cream cheese instead. As well, I leave off the
pine nuts for Maddie and Cora. And keep in mind that most fettucine
will have eggs in it, so be aware if you haven’t tried eggs
yet with your baby. And finally, this recipe is three steps and has
very few ingredients, so every ingredient counts. Go out and buy
the stone-ground mustard and fresh dill, and get fresh fettucine
instead of dried – the taste difference will be huge.
