Pasta Salad with Cherry Tomato, Avocado, and Garbanzo Beans for the Whole Family

This is what Mommy and Baby had for lunch yesterday. It's really easy to make and full of nutrients essential for you and your little one. This pasta salad has protein, iron, calcium, potassium and vitamins A and C. You can puree this for babies that are not ready for finger food yet, and serve as is for older babies.



Here's what you need:
1 1/2 cups whole wheat macaroni salad pasta
1/2 cup organic cherry tomatoes quartered
1/2 can organic garbanzo beans
1/2 avocado diced
1 tblsp italian seasoning
Handful Shredded provolone cheese (or shredded italian mix cheese)
1/4 cup olive oil

Cook pasta according to package (do not add salt to pasta water if serving to baby). Drain and rinse  pasta in cold water. Add tomatoes, garbanzos, avocado, cheese, olive oil, and italian seasoning. Toss to coat, and serve. If pureeing, add a little filtered water and the puree. Enjoy!

  2. I read a post from you the other day that has me on the road to spending more time developing and testing recipes. However, this recipe has stopped me in my tracks. I have to make these.
