Creamy Avocado and Spinach Pasta – a creamy sauce made with avocados, spinach, basil and pecans. A super healthy and delicious pasta dish, eat without guilt.

INGREDIENTS

  • 280g spaghetti dry, or fettuccine, I used semolina pasta
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 cup spinach fresh
  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 1/4 cup basil
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese grated
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice freshly squeezed
  • 3/4 to 1 cup pasta water
  • 1/2 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/2 tsp pepper or to taste

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Cook pasta: Cook the pasta according to the package instructions.
  • Make the avocado sauce: Add the rest of the ingredients to your blender and blend until it turns into a smooth sauce. Start with 3/4 cup of pasta water and add more as needed to get the consistency you want.
  • Assemble: Toss the pasta with the sauce in a bowl and serve immediately. This sauce is best served the day it is made, as it uses avocados which will turn a brownish color.
