Tricolor Pasta with Veggies and Turkey

This is a really easy and healthy meal for your little one. It's full of Vitamins A, C, and K, calcium, iron, protein, and whole grains. This takes about 15 minutes from beginning to end! You can puree this for little one's 7+ months, or serve as finger food to older babies.



Here's what you need: (This makes a big batch so you can store in the refrigerator for 3 to 5 days)
2 cups tricolor veggie spiral pasta
3/4 cup frozen organic gardeners blend (peas, carrots, green beans, corn mixed together)
1/2 cup organic cherry tomatoes quartered
2 slices reduced sodium turkey deli meat cut up into bite size pieces
1 tblsp Herbs de Provence
2 tblsp grated Parmesan cheese
1-2 tsp olive oil

Bring a pot of water to boil. Add pasta and frozen vegetables. Cook until al dente (approx 8-10 minutes). Drain pasta and vegetables and run under cold water. Place in a mixing bowl. Add quartered cherry tomatoes, turkey and olive oil. Toss and then sprinkle with Herbs de Provence and Parmesan Cheese. Toss to coat.  Yields about 1/2 - 3/4 cup per serving. Serve (or puree with a little water) and enjoy!
