Cream of zucchini with asparagus


A quick and easy recipe for toddlers. I used zucchini and asparagus but to do this recipe you can use almostany any vegetables. Personally I call this pasta recipe a "lifesaver" because it guarantees my child a meal with vegetables and it is very quick to prepare when I have very little time available and the adorable little monster is already screaming: I'M HUNGRY!!!
