An easy and healthy recipe that is toddler friendly and can also be part of family meal. The recipe is rich in iron and loved by kids.

The pasta sauce is what makes the pasta tasty & creamier. This time I tried making the sauce along with the sauteed veggies and cooked pasta in instant pot which was quicker and cooked well. Added broccoli & spinach which are my girl’s favorite vegetables. You can try adding more veggies making it more healthy if your little one likes.
