Little Dish - A Little Bit of Italy

Leo and I are big fans of the Little Dish meal range, they make a very tasty, easy dinner if you are strapped for time and they are just incredibly convenient. So the fact that they are healthy and Leo enjoys them are just extra bonuses for me!

Little Dish have very recently introduced bite sized pasta bags into their already extensive range of meals, and have kindly sent Leo a few to taste test.

We received a bag of:
- Cheese and Tomato Tortellini
- Spinach and Ricotta Ravioli

Each bag of bite sized pasta will feed up to 4 little mouths and is really simple and quick to prepare for dinner. I have been giving a little pasta on each occasion that I feed Leo as I know he will not eat the entirety of a bag, and I don’t want to waste any. 1 bag would see us through a few meals before it was all gone.

To prepare the pasta all you need to do is boil in a pan for around 4-5 minutes until they are cooked and then add your little one’s favourite sauce or topping. Leo is a big fan of cheese sauce so I decided to whip up a simple cheese sauce to go over the pasta.

Leo wouldn’t even try the pasta on the first evening I presented him with it, and proceeded to just lick the sauce off his fork. Leo has moments where he can be incredibly fussy…But on the next attempt he absolutely loved his Cheese and Tomato Tortellini and ate every bite in sight.

When presented with the Spinach and Ricotta Ravioli, I wasn’t sure what he would make of the Spinach but he continued to chow down and really enjoy it.

The new pasta bags are now available from all Waitrose stores and can also be purchased from, so if you give them a try let us know what you think!
