Asher Approved: Tomato and Basil Pasta

This weeks Asher Approved dish is a yummy Tomato and Basil pasta! I will warn you that this is a slightly messy dish, but your little will love! Enjoy! 

This dish is recommended for babies ages 9-12 months. 

2oz. small pasta
2Tbs. olive oil
1 onion finely chopped
1 garlic clove 
20oz. can chopped tomatoes 
1Tbs. tomato paste
1Tbs. balsamic vinegar
1Tsp. sugar
1Tbs. fresh basil (chopped)
Parmesan Cheese 

cook pasta until done. heat olive oil in a sauce pan, add onion and garlic, saute until soft. Add tomato, tomato paste, vinegar, and sugar. Cook (uncovered) for 10 minutes or so. Finally add the basil.

Mix pasta and sauce together. I like to freeze the rest of mine in serving size containers. This pasta is adult and big kid friendly too so make some for the whole family! 


  1. I LOVE THIS! My baby (9.5 months) can't feed himself yet .... do you think this would work, serving him with a spoon?


  2. A few months and I'll be using this for our littlest!

  3. What kind of eating utensil is that? I've never seen one of those.
