Easy Peasy Lentil Pasta Sauce

IMG_9217.jpg

Pasta is typically a favorite food among young children.  It can also be a great baby-led weaning food, as babies are easily able to pick up pieces of pasta.  I love to pack a nutritional punch into foods I know my kids will eat, so what better way than powering up a pasta sauce?  I created this lentil pasta sauce, which was basically cooking lentils and adding canned tomatoes (= easy!).  My girls love the sauce as-is, though it could be blended a bit as well for a smoother finish.  Enjoy!
