I got this idea when I saw Tyler Florence's Sprout Butternut Squash Macaroni and Cheese combination in the grocery store. It sounded like a really yummy mixture, so I decided to try to make my own version. This is a very chunky puree. It's kind of half puree, half finger food. You can serve this as a finger food, but it would be very messy. This is for babies 9+ months.
Here's what you'll need:
1/4 cup whole wheat macaroni
2 oz cooked butternut squash mashed (peel and cut into cubes, steam in microwave for 10 minutes)
1 oz garbanzo bean puree (I use canned organic garbanzos. Rinse thoroughly and puree with filtered water)
1 tsp grated cheddar cheese
1 tsp grated Parmesan cheese
pinch of ground nutmeg
pinch of onion powder
Bring water to boil in a small pot. Add macaroni and cook according to package. When macaroni is cooked, drain, and chop into bite size pieces. Mix mashed butternut squash and garbanzo puree in a small bowl. Add cheddar, parmesan, nutmeg, and onion powder. Add macaroni and mix until blended. Serve and enjoy!
