Avocado Pasta Sauce

November 9, 2012
Recently, Jim's aunt sent me this great recipe for avocado pasta sauce. I LOVE avocado and couldn't wait to try it out! It's super easy to make which makes it great during the busy work week.

You'll need 1/2 box cooked pasta of choice - I used whole wheat fettuccine
In a food processor combine the following:
1 avocado
Juice from 1/2 lemon
2 Tbsp EVOO
1 clove garlic
2 Tbsp basil (recipe calls for parsley, but I prefer basil)
Salt and pepper to taste

When pasta is done cooking, toss with sauce. Serve immediately.

This recipe would also be great with some shredded chicken.

Avocado is great for many reasons. It's delicious and packed full of nutrients such as potassium, B-vitamins, fiber and healthy fats. Plus, it's so versatile. You can eat it by itself, on salads, sandwiches, in soups, as a dip, the list goes on...

?   How do you prefer to eat an avocado?   ?


  1. That looks so good! What an awesome way to eat Avocado! I have eaten it in a smoothie and I really want to use it in chocolate mousse!

  2. This looks awesome! Dudley will love it and I don't usually care for straight-up avocado, but I bet I'd like it this way!
