Adam from At Dad's Table created this easy, warming, delicious pasta recipe especially for doddl.

 "After hectic weekends I always try and make sure we all have a decent, hearty and nutritious meal on a Sunday for the craziness of a new week. This Sunday Evening Pasta is a real ‘throw everything in’ dish. It's full to the brim with loads of veg and protein and Vitamin A rich minced beef. It also gave me a great opportunity to introduce my little one to doddl utensils, specifically designed for 1-5 year olds. I was pretty impressed at how he immediately picked up both the fork and spoon and started using it to feed himself. It meant that both he and my 3 year-old could feed themselves. And my wife and I could actually eat our own meals for once! We could all talk together around the table (well Benji just kept pointing out a pigeon in the garden). And it made mealtimes that much more enjoyable. I particularly liked how it gave Benji independence to eat what he wanted in which order. He also got to be in charge of saying when he was done.


So, for this dish I browned off 17.6 oz beef mince. I cooked around 10.6 oz penne pasta, draining it a few minutes before it was cooked. Then, I fried a chopped onion, some garlic, 2 grated zucchinis and a few chopped olives. I added the beef back in along with a jar of passata (or canned tomatoes would be fine). Then a squeeze of tomato puree and 2 fl oz beef stock. Finally, I added some leftover peas from a weekend packed lunch. Cook all together for 20 mins or so. Then add the cooked pasta and some grated cheddar. Cook for another few mins, stir well and serve."
