Recipe Notes

Tips for kids

  • For children under 2 just leave out the seasoning
  • I often use this sauce not just on pasta but add it to my little boys food so his meals have a little more flavour. ¬†You can add it to mince and veg dishes or over a piece of fish and potatoes or even through rice and veg
