Recipe: Avocado Pasta Sauce

In keeping up with the theme of getting and staying healthy, I have been trying out new dishes in the kitchen. Some of the recipes are old favorites and some are new! For me, the kitchen and cooking are stress relievers so I always like to try something new.

So I was craving some pasta (and yes I use organic pasta with gluten regularly) but I did not want anything heavy as my sauce or tomato-y. I needed to be creative with limited ingredients and time -I was not about to start cooking a full gourmet dinner at 7-something at night.

The result?

I made a quick homemade avocado sauce that was light but very flavorful! It can be served cold like a pasta salad but I did serve it warm last night

Ingredients:

1 Large Haas Avocado
1/4-1/2 Cup Greek Yogurt
2 Tbsp Parmesan Cheese
1/4 Cup Fresh Lemon Juice
1/3 Cup Olive Oil
3 Cloves Garlic (minced)
1/4 Cup Onion Powder
Fresh Black Pepper to taste

Mash and mix everything together (you can put it in the food processor for a creamier sauce). Top and serve!

Both my husband and I cleaned up the bowl! It was great especially on a warm/hot night for something light.
It was high in good cholesterol, easy to digest, flavorful, and with low/no salt.

Inquiring minds want to know… Have you tried a new recipe for an old favorite? Are you an avocado lover or is it not your cup of tea??
