I thought that the Va Va Voom tasted really good. It took me a while to eat it all up, I was too busy feeling those bubbly pasta pieces between my brand new top teeth.
The new flavours and textures made me very excited so it wasn’t the easiest meal I’ve eaten.
The second time I had this veggie delight, Mommy added a puréed pear cube which I loved so much more! That little sweet under tone to the lasagne made me gulp every mouthful! I was screaming for more, in fact I ate it all up in 5 minutes, I’m a big boy!
