44. avocado spinach pasta.

I love avocados. I love pasta. I love when a healthy dinner comes together in no time. Tonight was all of that! Original recipe can be found here. Her’s looks really delicious, but I veered off her recipe a bit – I used it as a starting point and made up my own version.

Heres what I did:
While my pasta noodles were boiling, I put these ingredients in my vitamix and blended it on high.

1 avocado
about a cup of spinach
1 carrot
handful of cherry tomatoes
1/2 onion
4 cloves garlic,
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 tspn paprika
1/4 tspn tumeric
1 Tablespoon dried basil
3 Tablespoon nutritional yeast
sea salt and pepper to taste

The result is a creamy delicious pasta sauce. When my pasta was done cooking, I put some noodles in a bowl, and put a spoonful or two and mixed it in. I added some chopped kalmata olives b/c I like the salty-ness with my avocados. I think some crushed pistachios would be awesome added in it! This was so easy and so delicious! It made a ton too!
