Roasted Piccolo Tomato Sauce

This simple tomato sauce is one you’ll turn to time and time again! Sweet Piccolo cherry tomatoes are roasted to bring out their natural sweetness, then blended into a smooth and creamy sauce. With just a hint of garlic and basil, this is a quick and easy way to add flavour (and some extra nutrition!) to your baby’s meals.

Simply stir the sauce through baby pasta shells or rice for a tasty introduction to texture.
