I think I found a new favorite pasta recipe! I saw this mentioned somewhere, and was intrigued. I had to think about it for awhile though, I was a little nervous. I mean, I LOVE avocado’s, but the idea of that as my pasta sauce made me a little nervous. What would it taste like? Would I like it? Would my husband actually eat it? Well, it was amazing, and I can’t wait to make it again! It was so easy too! You have to boil noodles, but aside from that, no cooking required! And to top it off, it is healthy!!! Use a fortified pasta, and you have protein, fiber, and everything all in one tasty meal!
Creamy Avocado Pasta
Adapted from Oh She Glows
1 large Avocado, pitted
1 lime, juiced + zest to garnish
2 cloves, minced
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/4 cup Fresh Basil
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 servings/6 oz of your choice of pasta
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Cook your pasta according to the package directions.
To make the sauce place the garlic cloves, lime juice, and olive oil into a food processor. Process until smooth. Add in the avocado, basil, and salt. Process until smooth and creamy.
Pour sauce over pasta and toss until fully combined. Garnish with lime zest and black pepper. Enjoy!
Note: Because of the avocado this does not reheat well.
