Spring vegetables are beautiful and sweet right now. Perfect for tempting your little ones to eat their greens. I love a green pasta sauce myself so decided to put this baby and child friendly version together using some spectacular greens with a hint of fragrant mint.

A pasta dish like this is perfect to portion up and keep in the freezer. This recipe makes enough for more than 8 little meals.
