Homemade Baby Food - Chicken & Noodles

So part of trying to be green has caused me to make a lot of Addie's baby food.  First stages it's so asy, steam puree, add liquid if needed, and go.  Once they like more substantial food you have to get more creative.

One of my co-workers gave me a bunch of Gerber stage 3 baby food that his son didn't like.  One of them was the Chicken and pasta one.  Addie LOVED it.  So it was time to make it at home.

Homemade Chicken & Pasta Baby Food

Canned Chicken
Small pasta - such as stars or the small ring pastas
Frozen Peas
Campbell's Cream of Chicken & Herbs
Cheese, if desired

This is pretty basic.  Cook the pasta, steam the veggies (if you're really short on time you can get a bag of Frozen Peas & Carrots).  Chop up the carrots if needed.  Drain and shred the chicken.  Mix everything together, adding the soup last.  Add enough soup to hold it together but not be runny.

Use brown rice instead of the pasta and use broccoli instead of the peas & carrots.

This is nice because it freezes and thaws well, so you can make a large batch and freeze it for later use.  I tried some and trust me - It was much more edible than the Gerber variety!
