Tuna Casserole, aka tuna pasta bake
This dish combines two of Lentil’s favourite foods – fish and pasta. So I was expecting it to pass the Lentil taste test with flying colours – surely?? Well actually, it only got the star sticker of approval second time round. I made the first dish using Penne pasta. Fine for adults, but the pasta was just a bit too big for a toddler-sized mouth. The eating of it made more difficult as said toddler hasn’t quite mastered cutting his food with a knife, yet insists on trying everything himself without any help!! Suffice to say it was a very long mealtime and require infinite patience!
Lesson learnt I decided to use macaroni on the second attempt. The result was the same delicious taste, but a toddler-friendly eating experience. Big sigh of relief all round!
