Healthy Baby Recipe: Mushroom Pasta Sauce

     I'm trying out a variety of flavors and textures on the Babe.  I really don't want him to end up to be a picky eater, like myself  (oh the shame).  What better way to start off than with my arch nemesis -mushrooms!  Dum, Dum, Dummm.......
Mushroom Pasta Sauce
(8 months +)
adapted from Amanda Grant's 'Baby & Toddler Healthy Eating Plan'

You will need:

1 Tbls Olive Oil
3 Scallions (finely chopped)
10 oz. Mushrooms (sliced)

1 Tbls Parsley (finely chopped)
Fresh Ground Pepper
6 Tbls No Salt Vegetable Stock
3 Tbls Cream Cheese
Pasta or Rice (cooked)

Heat the Oil in Large Skillet.  Add Scallions and Saute' Until Translucent (about 5 min.)

Add Mushrooms and Fry Until Golden Brown and Begining to Loose Their Liquid.  Add Parsley & Pepper and Stir.

Stir in Stock and cook over gentle heat until soft (about 5 min)

Stir in Cream Cheese

Mmmm... smells great!

Transfer to Food processer (blender, hand mixer) and Blend into Desired Consistency (I left mine with a little texture). Freeze in Ice Cube tray.  Makes About 12 Cubes.

Serve Over Pasta or Rice
(Um kinda looks like cat food, but I'm sure it's good right?)

Open Wide.....

Well, what do you think little man?

That'll do Babe, that'll do.
