Kids' Whole Wheat Pasta with Pureed Broccoli Sauce

A friend of mine told me about the idea of pureeing broccoli to put in kids' pasta to get their veggies.  So I tried it, and doctored it up a bit.  Well, Cash absolutely loved it!  So I froze a bunch to use for later dinners and am very satisfied.

Note - these measurements are approximate.  Feel free to add more of less of certain ingredients to meet your liking.


2 Cups uncooked whole wheat rotini (or other pasta)
2 Cups packed raw broccoli, tough stems trimmed
1/2 Cup low fat cream cheese
1/4 Cup low sodium chicken broth
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 Cup shredded parmesan cheese
1 Tsp garlic powder
1 Tsp onion powder


Boil broccoli in a pot under very tender, about 15 minutes.  At the same time, cook pasta according to package directions.  Drain both separately.

In a food processor or blender, combine all ingredients except the pasta.  Once smooth, pour over pasta in a pot and mix over warm heat.
