Tomato and Eggplant Spaghetti

Harry just loves pasta, and I wanted to introduce him to eggplant, so I thought a nice tomato eggplant pasta would do the trick. You can really introduce eggplant around 8-10 months but I just haven’t gotten around to it as we don’t eat it that often – unless we get the miso eggplant at our favourite japanese place, nomnomnom.

Please excuse the crappy photo, I am sicky mc sick sick at the moment, I promise this is delicious. The tomato sauce is rich, so you really don’t need much for kids.

Tip: You could very simply add some meatballs  or browned mince to this recipe, but it was vegetarian night here. Next time.
