Easy King Prawn Taglietelle

This is a great dish for the whole family. Ensure it is prepared appropriately for your child’s weaning stage. The taglietelle is great as a finger food when cut into short strips, and the prawns can also be chopped up small and given as a finger food.

Tip: you can use smaller prawns if you prefer, or use these if giving to infants at an earlier stage of weaning as they are much softer for them to chew.
