Mini Ravioli with Chopped Spinach and Tomatoes

My little guy loves mini ravioli, or rather any ravioli. I can mix it with anything and he's sure to eat it. I'll have to learn how to make my own ravioli so I can start stuffing it with all the veggies and other things I've been serving with it. I guess I'll make that this years food resolution. I will learn how to make ravioli from scratch. Until then I'll keep buying the mini ravioli from Trader Joe's. This is for little one's who are eating finger foods (approx 10+ months). This makes a few servings so you can store some in the fridge for a few days.

Here's what you need:
1/2 cup to 3/4 cup mini ravioli
1/2 cup frozen organic chopped spinach
handful organic cherry tomatoes cut in quarters
1 to 2 tblsp grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

Bring a pot of water to boil. Add pasta and frozen spinach. Cook for pasta time on box. Drain under cold water and place in a mixing bowl. Add parmesan cheese, garlic and nutmeg. Toss to coat. Add quartered cherry tomatoes and serve. You can serve this cool or warm. Serving size for your little one is 1/2 cup. If you are making this for the whole family increase amount of pasta and spinach to 1 or 2 cups. Increase amounts of other ingredients a little too. You could always add chicken to this too. Enjoy!
