Bebe Mac


Bebe Mac - 9 Months+
Ingredients:
  • 1 cup small dry pasta (I use whole wheat but a gluten-free pasta could be substituted)
  • water for cooking
  • 3/4 cup yellow wax beans (cleaned and ends trimmed)
  • 1 cup cheese (grated cheddar works great)
  • 1 tbsp yogurt cheese or cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup breast milk (or formula)(or any milk for babies over 12 months)
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg 

Steam Beans until very tender (about 10-12 minutes) Steam the beans in either a steaming basket on the stove or in the Beaba babycook.  If using the babycook fill water to the 2 mark for a full basket of beans.  If steaming on the stove use about 2 inches of water and steam for about 10-12 minutes.  Allow to cool and puree till smooth.  Cook the pasta according to package directions and drain.  Add milk, bean puree and cream cheese to pasta, blending well.  Then mix in cheese till melted.  Finish it off with the nutmeg.  Mash or puree to achieve a smoother texture depending on your little one's needs.  This recipe will keep up to 3 days in the fridge or 3 months in the freezer and will fill about 2 ice cube trays (8-16 servings).
