crosspost -15 Minute Creamy Avocado Pasta

From the Page

Alert the grocery store because there is going to be an avocado shortage in my town. Well, more than usual that is. [And yes, I said ‘store’. I know I will be making it again and again, especially for those dinners when we are strapped for time…or just plain old tired after a long day. Creamy, thick, and rich with lots of garlic flavour and a hint of lemon. This is my newest favourite pasta dish. The avocado works wonderfully in this recipe to create a sauce so creamy and thick, you will think there is cream hiding in there. Inspired by My Recipe.org. Bring several cups of water to a boil in a medium sized pot. Add in your pasta, reduce heat to medium, and cook until Al Dente, about 8-10 minutes. Meanwhile, make the sauce by placing the garlic cloves, lemon juice, and olive oil into a food processor. Now add in the pitted avocado, basil, and salt. Process until smooth and creamy. When pasta is done cooking, drain and rinse in a strainer and place pasta into a large bowl. Pour on sauce and toss until fully combined. Garnish with lemon zest and black pepper. Please note: This dish does not reheat well due to the avocado in the sauce. Spelt pasta has a great nutritional profile with 12 grams of protein and 3 grams of fibre per serving. I also used one 3oz serving of Kamut pasta. Kamut pasta has 13 grams of protein and 8 grams of fibre per serving. They both taste AMAZING and are very easy on the digestive system. Regular white spaghetti has only 1.7 grams of fibre and 4 grams of protein per serving.  Eric and I actually prefer the nutty flavour of the ancient grains over the white pasta so it is an easy switch.
