Whole Wheat Spaghetti with Lemon, Basil, and Salmon - Giada

This recipe from Giada inspired me to make a similar dish for my daughter minus the salt.  

Here's the adult version:

Whole Wheat Spaghetti with Lemon, Basil and Salmon by Giada
Here's the baby food version:

Here's my version of Giada's recipe:

  •  8 oz of of whole wheat Spaghetti

  • 2 cups of Spinach  ( I use more since spinach is good for you)
  • 0.5 cup of basil  ( you can use more if you want more flavor)
  • 0.5 lb of Salmon (cubed)
  • 2 cloves of garlic (sliced)

  •  Steam the Spinach along with half of the garlic.  Should only take a few minutes.  Don't over steam!

  • Boil the spaghetti.  After it's been drained toss in the steamed spinach along with garlic

  • Steam the salmon with rest of the garlic and basil for flavor

  • After salmon is cooked toss in with the spaghetti and spinach.  
  • Squeeze half a lemon.  

  •  Put pasta in your food processor and blend depending on how chunky and smooth your baby is able to swallow.  
  • You are done!
