This here is a long time Harry favourite. I recently tested this recipe on a friends fussy toddler, and we were thrilled to see her hoover it up and literally lick the bowl clean. Truly versatile and so simple, this will be one of those recipes you will use time and time again.
This is the basic version, I often add other veggies such as zucchini, peas, corn and mushrooms, or poached chicken, depending on what I have in the fridge.

- 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 small brown onion, finely chopped
- 1/2 cup chopped tomato
- 1/2 carrot, grated
- 1 tbsp cream (optional)
- 1/4 cup grated cheese
- 1 cup dried pasta spirals
Bring a saucepan of water to the boil. Cook the pasta to your liking and set aside. -
Heat the oil in a small fry pan over medium. Add the onions and cook for a few minutes, or until soft. -
Add the tomato, and carrot (and any other veggies) and sauté, stirring occasionally for around 5 minutes. -
Add the cream and cheese. Stir until melted and then pour in the pasta. Toss to coat and serve. -
Tip: I usually keep the second serve in the fridge for the following nights dinner. -
