With a creamy, veggie-packed sauce, this easy Avocado Pasta is packed with kid-friendly flavor and nutrients.
– Grated Parmesan – Avocado: Fresh, ripe avocado works best in this recipe. – Lemon – Olive oil – Garlic
Cook the pasta according to the package directions. Meanwhile, add the Parmesan, avocados, lemon juice, olive oil, and garlic (if using) to a food processor or blender.
Blend smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl a few times until very smooth. (If using the garlic, try to make sure it got well blended.)
Stir the avocado sauce into the pasta. Serve warm or at room temperature as a pasta salad. Season to taste with salt as needed and extra Parmesan.
Mix in cooked and diced chicken, steak, ham, or shrimp, or white beans or chickpeas to add more protein if desired.
This sauce is best on the day you make it. You can store it in the fridge in an airtight container for a few hours without too much browning.
