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.
Super Simple Tomato Pasta
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 onion, diced
- 2 teaspoons minced garlic
- 600ml passata
- 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 400g dried pasta
In a large pan, heat the oil over a medium heat and then fry the onion and garlic until soft (approximately 10 minutes)
Once the onion has softened, add the passata and balsamic vinegar to the pan - allow to simmer for 5 minutes, stirring frequently
After 5 minutes, turn the heat down and cook the pasta according to the packet instructions
Once cooked, drain the pasta and stir it into tomato sauce
Serve once cooled.
To make this dish even healthier you can add a variety of vegetables, for example: mushrooms, aubergines and courgettes work particularly well.
