Minestrone

Have a look at this cute minestrone soup that we prepared for our little cobbler. We added some fun to it by using unique-shaped pasta which we bought from Healthy Options. You can view my other post about the pasta shapes.

Our son really loved this minestrone recipe and kept asking for more. He loved seeing the different pasta shapes and even loved identifying them.

You can cook these ahead and keep them in sealed containers in the freezer and just heat them up before eating. You can also add a bit of cream for a creamier texture or you can also add cheese cause kids love cheese right!

This is a very healthy and nutritious meal for your baby and even for you cause it contains a lot of vegetables.
