5 Veg Tomato Pasta

This creamy and easy hidden veggie pasta sauce is a total gamechanger. Kids and adults will never know that there are 5 hidden veggies in here. The sauce is silky smooth, and loaded with fibre and nutrients. Once little ones have tried this, you’ll be batch-cooking it by the bucket load! Pair with Garofalo moon and star shaped pasta for an out of this world food adventure.

For a toddler portion we suggest that you use 50g of sauce and 25g dried pasta. For an adult portion use 150g sauce and 100g dried pasta per portion.
