Now that he’s getting older and can “eat what we eat” as everyone keeps telling me I’ve been working on finding baby friendly recipes. If I come up with them myself I’ll share the recipe. If it’s from a book I’ll just share the photo. Some of these will just be inspired by something I saw, not measured out and loosely thrown together. Like this one.

Lasagna Roll Ups

I saw the recipe for spinach and cheese roll ups in a baby cook book, was inspired and threw these together.

1 carrot, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 onion, minced
Pinch basil
Pinch oregano
4 tomatoes
Ground beef
Lasagna noodles
Shredded mozzarella

Boil water for lasagna noodles, place noodles in water and removed when fully cooked. Drain, lay flat and cut in half.

As noodles cook, brown ground beef. Drain.

In a separate saucepan sauté carrot, clove, onion, basil and oregano for 5-10 minutes. Add diced tomato and simmer until a chunky sauce. (short cut to this is to use the stuff you can buy in a jar–I wanted to go easy on the tomato and heavy carrot) Blend in food processor, return to pan and add fully cooked ground beef. Stir.

Now we assemble. Place a layer of shredded mozzarella into the middle of the noodle, add beef and sauce mixture and roll. Do this for all noodles and bake on 350 in the oven until cheese is melted. Let cool then refrigerate or freeze for later.

You could probably use shells to stuff instead if you wanted.

Now that I made them, Kamran might be too young at 13 months to eat these often. It’s just going to be a really messy meal.

For bigger kids I would probably serve them in extra sauce and more cheese on top.
