Finger Food: Herbed Turkey with Red Bell Peppers and Whole Wheat Pasta for Baby

I made this for my little guy for dinner tonight. You can serve this as a finger food like I did, or puree all ingredients together. Bell peppers are my little guy's new food this week. Bell peppers are a great source of vitamin C. You can puree sweet red, yellow, or green bell peppers, or dice into tiny pieces. Make sure you serve  or puree them raw as they lose vitamins when cooked. Also make sure NOT to give your little one hot peppers. This recipe is for babies 10+ months.



Here's what you'll need:
1/3 cup sauteed ground turkey (I saute with olive oil)
1/4 red bell pepper finely diced
1 1/2 tblsp whole wheat pasta (I used macaroni and cut into small pieces)
pinch dried oregano
pinch dried basil

In a small pot bring water to boil. Add pasta, and cook according to package. Drain and set aside. Put sauteed ground turkey in a small bowl and add oregano and basil. Toss to coat. Add pasta and diced red bell pepper and mix. Serve right on high chair tray. *If you are pureeing this recipe follow same mixing directions and then puree with a little filtered water. Serve and enjoy!
