This an ultra simple and easy recipe for babies, kids, papa, and mama! A Green pea pasta with a tad of parmesan cheese, olive oil and pepper. Add some extra shaved parmesan and bacon bits for the grown-ups.

This recipe idea comes from my Austrian friend, Nadine, who is married to an Italian guy. When we would go out to a picnic with our babies back in the day, she always brought a thermos with this green pea pasta for her little one. I remember thinking that it was such an easy and yummy idea! She would make it with this fun star-shaped pasta for babies; it was perfect. Once a toddler, you can switch to fusilli, farfalle, penne or else. I’ve turned the recipe into a grown-up dish to make it easy for the house’s cook to create a single meal for the whole family! This way, everyone is happy!

*Special thanks to Nadine for sharing her recipe with me!

Green Pea Pasta

Balancing Sweet Peas

Babies love these sweet peas, plus they are super healthy. Although a mouthful of green peas for a grown-up can be lovely, the bacon bits and shaved parmesan will help balance this whole dish. You could also replace it with lightly cooked cured ham. As for the parmesan, which will serve as the salt for the baby dish, there is no need to add any. Plus, parmesan always brings in this natural umami taste we all dig, baby included!

Parseman Lactose-Free?

Green Pea Pasta

Usually, when babies are under one year old, it is better not to give them lactose because it could be hard to digest. Well, good news! Parmesan is lactose-free! Well, almost! It has a minuscule amount of lactose that doesn’t affect digestion. Because of the aging process, mature cheeses’ lactose turns into lactic acid, which makes it suitable for babies in small quantities.
