2+ year toddler recipe

Blue is the color for Friday in Thailand and the theme of this dish is blue. I love pesto sauce and regularly make it at home. I put it on grilled chicken breast, toast, and of course, pasta! But for Jaycob I’ll be adding pesto to a milk-based creamy pasta. You can see my simple pesto recipe which I’ll be uploading soon.

Step-by-step Guide:

Crisping bacon in a blue le creuset 28cm cast iron pot

1 – Cook half your bacon to a crisp – I like both soft bacon and crispy bacon. Crispy bacon adds a nice contrast to the dish as well. With some olive oil, cook this first half of bacon to a crisp.

2 – Saute mushrooms and bacon – Remove the crispy bacon and leave the oil. Here we saute the other half of bacon and portobello mushrooms for a few minutes. Lightly season with salt and pepper. I’m using low-sodium salt. Don’t add too much salt as there is sodium from the bacon and pesto sauce.

3 – Add your pasta – close the lid and let it cook over medium heat for about 8-10 minutes or until the pasta is just about done. I’m using pappardelle pasta in this dish, you can use any pasta you’re in the mood for.

4 – Add pesto sauce and parmesan – When the pasta is done, or nearly done. By now the most of the sauce should have evaporated. If not, leave it to cook with the lid off for a few more minutes. Turn the heat off and add your pesto sauce parmesan, and give it a soft stir.
