Avocado Pasta

I shared some of my favorite pinterest avocado finds last time (see my full avocado pinterest board here), but I saved this recipe for a special post all its own: avocado pasta. This has been one of my husband and my favorite recipes all summer – its quite healthy pasta recipe which still has a tasty creamy sauce – just this time the creaminess is from avocadoes (and great for your skin and hair!) instead of cream (which is really just great for lovehandles). It also comes together in about 15 minutes!

Avocado Pasta Recipe
makes about 4 servings
adapted from Oh She Glows

Ingredients

  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 3 small avocadoes (or about 1.5 large ones)
  • 7 oz. spaghetti
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil (for cooking pasta – if you want)
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp. parmesan cheese

Avocado pasta ingredients

1. Cook pasta according to box directions. I usually add a tablespoon or so of olive oil to the boiling water to keep noodles from sticking together.I like to use pasta high in fiber and protein – this time I used Barilla Plus.

2. While pasta is cooking, add garlic, lemon juice, avocados, and 1 Tbsp. parmesan cheese to food processor. Pulse until well blended.

Have you ever made a creamy sauce using something healthy instead of cream?

I’m sharing this at some of these places.

  1. Fabulous! My daughter loves avacado, so I will definitely be trying this!…am also off to check out your pinterest avacado board. Thanks for sharing!

  2. What a cool idea! One of my favorite ways to have avocado is with shrimp cocktail. The creamy avocado flavor is delicious with the shrimp and the cocktail sauce. 🙂 I love the idea of using it as a sauce on pasta. So clever.

    If you’d like, I wanted to invite you to share your best recipes over at my new party, Recipe Sharing Monday at Jam Hands. I’m going to be featuring my favorite submissions during the week and I’d love it if you’d join in the fun. :O)

  3. These exercises will build up muscles in the thigh and buttocks.
    Take a chest press for example; the main muscle worked is the chest,
    secondary maybe the triceps. Strength and physical
