Recipe: Bolognese Pasta Sauce for Babies

As i blogged in the last post, Afif loves pasta with bolognese sauce. The first few times, i made the sauce using leftover of pizza sauce that i made which used canned peeled tomatoes. As the canned tomatoes are preserved with vinegar, Wan kata guna lah fresh tomatoes. Gentler on Afif's tummy katanya. Baik lah. Google home made pasta sauce and made some adjustment.

Here's the recipe:

Chicken Bolognese Pasta Sauce

Ingredients
4 peeled ripe tomatoes (to peel: cut an 'X' on top of tomatoes, put in boiling water for 10 seconds, and put into a bowl full of iced water. The skin will easily come off)
olive oil
2 cloves garlic (diced)
Bolognese herbs (i use Masterfood brand)
Half teaspoon of black pepper
Chicken breast (cut into little pieces) or minced chicken
1 fresh mushroom (cut into little pieces)
1.5 cup of water
Half of a carrot (coarsely cut)
Salt and sugar to taste


Spaghetti Bolognese herbs

Method
Sautee the garlic in olive oil until golden brown (sampai naik bau lah orang kata). Put in the tomatoes (don't forget to remove the seeds and cut them in 4) and some water. When they boil, put in the bolognese herbs, black pepper, and a bit of salt and sugar. Reduce heat (api paling slow lah kiranya) and leave for approximately 1.5 hours to soften the tomatoes. After 1.5 hours, stir in the minced chicken and carrot (carrot is used to absorb acidity of the tomatoes). Wait until chicken in thoroughly cooked. Set aside. Remove the carrot pieces (i always munch it). Serve with alphabet pasta. Yum!



This recipe can make 6 servings with about 1oz per serving. i usually freeze the sauce and reheat it for Afif. Tak payah la banyak kali nak masak.

Pasni nak try buat cream based pasta sauce plak untuk Mama Afif.
