I used less tomato ketchup for my 1-year-old daughter. It is a perfect dish for babies!!! For adults, you can season it with additional tomato ketchup right before you eat ;)


Spaghetti Napolitan

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 20min
Number of servings: 2 adults and 1~2 babies

200g (7oz.) spaghetti
100g (3.5oz.) onion
50g (1.8oz.) carrot
50g (1.8oz.) green pepper
2 slices of ham
1/2 consomme cube or powder
2 or more tbsp. tomato ketchup
5 tbsp. canned diced tomatoes
1 tsp. olive oil
grated parmesan cheese

1. Slice the onion. Thinly slice the carrot, green pepper, and ham.
2. Cook spaghetti as directed on its package.
3. Heat olive oil in a frying pan, stir-fry onion and carrot slices until tender. Then add ham and green pepper and cook until just combined.
4. Mix in diced tomato, 2 tbsp. of tomato ketchup, and consomme cube. Then add the spaghetti and toss to coat evenly.
5. For a baby, remove a small bowl of Napolitan (100g=3.5oz.) and place it into a small pot. Add 150ml water, then simmer until water is fully absorbed and tender. You can cut the pasta into small pieces and/or add more tomato ketchup to season it, depending on the age of your baby.
6. For adults, season the dish with additional tomato ketchup (2~6 tbsp.) to your taste. Then dust with grated parmesan cheese to finish.
