Creamy green pasta

This simple, creamy green pasta takes just minutes to make and is packed full of healthy goodness.  It was a big hit with Harry and will definitely be featuring on our lunchtime menu again!  Just a quick warning though, it is messy!  There is a strong chance your little one will look like Shrek after eating it but I’d say it’s well worth it.



To feed 2 hungry children.

  • Enough pasta for 2 children
  • A large handful of spinach
  • 1/2 a ripe avocado
  • 1 tbsp cream cheese
  • A twist of black pepper


  • Boil the pasta until cooked.
  • While the pasta is cooking, make the sauce.
  • Put the spinach in a food processor and blitz until finely chopped.
  • Add the avocado, cream cheese and black pepper to the food processor and mix until smooth.
  • Drain the pasta and return to the pan.  Stir through the sauce and serve.
  • Enjoy!

  1. Looks yummy! Going to make this for the toddlers lunch today I think 🙂 I’ll mention you on my blog if that’s ok? Ali x

  2. I have just made this but I used garlic and herb cream cheese and frozen spinach do you think that would make much of a difference to the recipe? I don’t really like avocado so to me this tastes awful, but I’m hoping the girl will like it even with the changes.

  3. My daughter absolutely loves this!! So quick and easy to make and she demolishes it 🙂 thanks for sharing!
