Jack loves spaghetti bolognese but I’ve found that most of it ends up on him or the floor as it’s hard for him to pick up the little noodles in his little hands so I decided to do some investigation..
Looking down the pasta isle at the supermarket I came across Singapore Noodles and Undon Noodles (both good to use in this recipe), I’ve had these before but never cooked with them so I decided to give it ago.
1x packet of either Singapore or Undon Noodles
1x Tin chopped tomatoes – You can get tinned tomatoes that have sugar so if you don’t want this for your child read the labels.
1/2 cup mixed veges (I use peas, corn and carrots)
1/2 cup finely sliced broccoli
1/2 cup of cabbage sliced
This is the easy part –
1. Tip tin of tomato’s, veges, broccoli into pot and bring up to the boil
2. Add in cabbage, put a lid on and simmer for about 5-10 minutes
3. Add in the noodles and stir so that the veges, noodles and sauce are incorporated
Children don’t need added extras like us adults have eg salt and pepper and to be honest this tastes pretty good on it’s own. Jack loves it and more of it ends up in his mouth than around him thanks to the fat noodles!
You could also change this recipe around and add ground beef that’s been cooked or strips of beef pre-cooked, I’m sure your little one would love it!
