This is a great dinner idea for your little one! What is very exciting is how much fun it is for kids to make it and how healthy it is! 


– 100g baby spinach.

– 150g flower. 

– 2 tbsp Parmesan cheese. 


 Put baby spinach and flower in to the food processor and mix until combined well. 

You want it to be this same consistency as play dough 😁.

Then to the fun part, you need to shape your pasta. Your little one will have so much fun doing it with you. Divided the sought in to 1cm balls and the roll it until you achieve thin rolls of pasta.

 Cook the pici straight away, or leave them to dry out for a few hours, or even overnight. If you are Cooking them straight away add to the boiling water and cook for around 8 minutes; if you cooking them from dry then allow extra 5 minutes. 

 Once ready put on the plate, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve (this will give you quite a few portions which you can freeze). 

 I have made this pasta from Jamie Oliver recipe from his new book Super Food Family Classic (http://www.jamieoliver.com/recipes/pasta-recipes/spinach-pici-pasta/). I have made the recipe for us grown ups and adapted it for Chloe. If your child is older then you probably can follow the recipe and just miss on some chilly flakes.
