I normally have this in the freezer all the time, for Bobcat and for the days when he’s extra picky and won’t eat anything substantial. Pasta can always come. So it’s a good idea to add as much healthy and nutritious ingredients to a pasta dish as you can. Very simple to prepare, a real comfort food for him. If you cook everything really soft, it’s a great weaning meal too. The recipe below will give you 3-4 toddler portions.
half a head of broccoli, broken into florets
150g pasta (any kind of, really)
2 small garlic cloves, minced
150ml whole milk
50g medium cheddar cheese grated
half a tbsp of flour
1 tsp of fresh parsley, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
Start to boil some water in a medium pan and steam the broccoli above it. It takes around 15 minutes to soften, but depends on how tender you want it. In a small pan poach the salmon for 10 minutes in 100ml milk on low/medium heat, add the garlic and the parsley. When it’s cooked, set it aside. We keep the milk too, don’t throw it away. Start to cook the pasta and simultaneously, in a small pan melt the butter, add the flour and simmer for a minute. Add the milk from the salmon pan and keep stirring on low heat when it starts to thicken, add some more milk and the grated cheese. Add some salt and pepper if you wish. When everything cooked, flake the salmon. In a bowl mix everything well. The broccoli should just break into small pieces. Serve it with a some grated cheese on the top.
