This yummy, high-protein, high-calcium dish has a creamy, almost souffle-like texture, perfect for the 1-year-old palate. When your baby gets older and develops a taste for stronger flavors, substitute Asiago for the Parmesan cheese. Also, after Baby turns 2, use part-skim ricotta and reduced-fat sour cream to make the dish a little lighter.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Defrost and heat spinach in small amount of water in saucepan; drain thoroughly. While spinach is warming, combine ricotta, sour cream, flour, 1 cup Parmesan or Asiago cheese, and tuna in large bowl.

Step 2

Add eggs, drained spinach, salt, and pepper, and mix thoroughly. Coat 9 1/2" by 5 1/2" by 3" loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray. Pour mixture into pan.

Step 3

Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup grated cheese evenly over top. Bake 55 minutes to an hour, until top is golden. Let cool slightly, slice and serve.
