Super Simple Tomato Pasta

This simple yet delicious tomato pasta dish is a staple in our household as it’s so quick to prepare. It’s lovely with grated cheese sprinkled over the top. For adults, it is also delicious with some chopped chorizo, but I would refrain from adding this to your little one’s portion because processed meat is not recommended for babies under 12 months of age.
