Pasta for parrots

parrot food


When I lived in Italy pasta was often one of the 3-5 course menu’s we used to eat every day. Somehow since I came to the US I started eating them less and less. But my birds love them. Now, normal wheat pasta is not really a good parrot food anyway. So, I was happy when I discovered organic quinoa pasta. My birds are happy too, because since that time every once in a while there is pasta on the menu again.

Here is one of the recipes my birds really like:

Bring water to a boil; throw in pasta (for my 11 parrots I used one cup).

While the pasta is cooking, I put a large carrot and ½ of a small fennel in the food processor until it is a mash. You can use any vegetable for this recipe.

When pasta is almost soft, I remove the water and add one tablespoon of olive oil, stir it well and ad the vegetable mash.

The olive oil makes the vegetable mash stick to the pasta. Otherwise most birds would just eat the pasta and leave the veggies.

Buon Appetito
