You don’t need the cream, butter and cheese to enjoy a filling pasta dish. Avocado is a rich, decadent replacement that, when paired with garlic, lemon, and fresh mint leaves, doesn’t carry with it any semblance of guacamole. It’s simply a delicious, creamy Alfredo pasta sauce deserving of all the praise I promise it’ll receive. Enjoy!
- 2 servings of pasta cooked according to package instructions
- 1 avocado
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- Juice of 1 lemon
- Handful of fresh mint
- 2 cloves garlic
Toss all ingredients into a food processor and mix until smooth. Fold into cooked pasta and enjoy!
Garnish with mint.
