Creamy Avocado Pasta Sauce

creamy avocado pasta

My name is Francesca and I’m addicted to avocados….

Anything I can add them to, I definitely do! 

Seriously, I love them so much!

In this I recipe paired them with just a few fresh ingredients and had a delicious pasta sauce the whole family loved!
This recipe came out of one of those days when you are in desperate need to go grocery shopping and need to make a quick dinner. Honestly,I think some of the best meals come out of those days!

It doesn’t take a bunch of fancy ingredients to make something delicious, and this sauce is proof of that.

This sauce was served with 2 Cups of cooked pasta (whichever you choose)

  • 2 Ripe avocados pitted and peeled
  • The juice of half a lemon
  • 3 Large leaves of basil
  • 1/4 Cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 Cloves of garlic
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. While your pasta is cooking, combine all ingredients in a food processor .
  2. Mix until you reach your desired consistency, I prefer it creamier but a chunkier sauce would be good too!
  3. Adjust taste with more salt and pepper if you prefer.
  4. Toss your pasta and sauce together right after draining your pasta. While pasta is still hot.

It’s fresh taste is amazing and my kid’s loved the green colour of the sauce! Frankie said it looked like ninja turtle ooze (I promise it doesn’t!!!) 

Whatever makes them eat dinner right..?

(kid’s are weird lol!)

Enjoy,

Fran
