This recipe is delicious and ideal for a family meal served with a salad. Your kids will love it, and I'm sure you will too. My daughter loves to eat the creamy pasta topping. This is suitable for babies 8 months plus, just cut the pasta into manageable pieces if necessary.

1 cup macaroni-style pasta
250g cream cheese
