1/2 red pepper, deseeded and chopped

15ml/1 tablespoon vegetable oil

2 carrots, sliced

115g,4oz French or string or runner beans, sliced

1 courgette, sliced

55g/2oz wholemeal pasta

115g/4oz tuna canned in water

Put the pepper half under a hot grill, skin side uppermost. when the skin is black and charred allow it to cool, then remove the skin and slice the pepper beneath. Heat the oil in a pan and add the vegetables. Cover the pan and sweat over a low to medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking. Add about 300ml/1/2 pint water or no- added-salt vegetable stock. Add the pasta and cook for a further 15 minutes until the pasta is cooked. Transfer to a food processor/liquidiser/mouli. Drain the tuna and add. Blend to the desired consistency, or chop for older babies. Cool quickly and portion for freezing.
