  • Cook pasta according to packet directions; drain; place in a large bowl.

  • Meanwhile, remove chicken meat from bones and chop into small pieces. Add to pasta.

  • Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat; add garlic and leek; cook 2-3 minutes or until leek is tender; pour in pasta sauce; bring to the boil; add to pasta; toss gently to combine; spoon into a baking dish; dot with ricotta and sprinkle with cheese. Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden and heated through.


    For younger babies, simply place in a food processor or blender, thinning down with boiled water for a thinner consistency or mash with a fork for older babies.
