Pasta With Salmon And Broccoli In Cheese Sauce – Great Toddler Meal


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, this pasta with salmon and broccoli is a great weaning meal too. The recipe below will give you 3-4 toddler portions.

Pasta With Salmon And Broccoli In Cheese Sauce - Great Toddler Meal


50g salmon

half a head of broccoli, broken into florets

150g pasta (any kind of, really)

2 small garlic cloves, minced

150ml whole milk

30g butter

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 is 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.
