  • Permanent marker

 

Directions:

  • Mix 1-2 teaspoons of butter to the mashed pastas in order to avoid discoloration.
  • Using measuring cups measure and fill the mashed pasta in ziploc freezer bags.
  • Ensure that there is no air left inside the freezer bag by leaving a half inch header space before sealing.

Instead of butter, margarine can be used to avoid discoloration. Mashed pastas can be introduced to your baby at 8 months of age, as an infant food. Just defrosting and thawing would bring the frozen mashed pasta back to its original consistency.
