Avocado Pasta

I really love pasta, and I really love avocado, so of course I found a way to bring the two together in a deliciously 'creamy' dish! This is almost reminiscent of an Alfredo, but without all the cream. The beauty of this recipe (as with most recipes here on the blog) is that it's really customize-able! Add in whatever veg you fancy, play around with seasoning, change up the type of pasta you use. Heck, you can bake it with cheese on top like a casserole if you want (I'd recommend it - it's delicious, just like all things baked with cheese).
Read on for the full recipe!  

Avocado Pasta

  •  2 avocados 
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes (or to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp salt (or to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp pepper (or to taste) 
  • 1 onion
  • 1 zucchini 
  • 6-8 mushrooms
  • Pasta (I used fresh egg tagliatelle)
  • Parmesan cheese to serve 

  •  Sauté onion and mushrooms in oil or butter 
  •  Add zucchini for the last five minutes and cook to desired tenderness
  •  Cook pasta according to package directions  
  •  When the pasta is cooked, toss together with veg 
For the sauce:
  • Heat up olive oil, crushed garlic, red pepper flakes, salt & pepper in small pan until sizzling, removing from heat before the garlic begins to brown
  • Blend together with avocados and lemon juice until smooth 
  • Toss together with pasta & veg
  • Serve with grated Parmesan cheese
