10-Minute Avocado Pasta Dinner

Easy Weeknight Avocado Pasta | www.lovetheeveryday.comSo I have an obsession with avocados. All that healthy fatty goodness and no-cholesterol-flavorful happiness. You can cut them in half and they become adorable little bowls just ready to be stuffed with tuna salad, or chili, or something with bacon, **God I love bacon**.

I have been on an avocado smoothie kick lately, too. I’m not kidding, chocolate protein powder, banana and avocado is so incredibly yummy. Try it! Seriously. Smoothies. Yes.

I’ve added avocado to brownies, and use it in place of mayo on my sandwiches. I’m addicted. I’ve been known to eat avocado-something for all three meals of the day. Can we just say that I get intense cravings for scrambled eggs with bacon and avocado… It’s also high in protein and keeps me from getting mid-morning munchies. Yum.
My avocado love runs almost as deep as my recent scallop obsession, which is a rant for another time. Long story short, I pinned this recipe on Pinterest a few months ago, and it has gotten like half a billion repins (or 239) since then! I figured I should probably give it a whirl myself given I love pasta and easy weeknight dinner ideas.

I used my nutribullet to blend the ingredients for the “sauce” and tossed it with hot angel hair pasta (because angel hair cooks so fast and also happens to be my favorite, but I suppose you could use any pasta.)avocado and spinach pasta Creamy weeknight Avocado pasta | www.lovetheeveryday.com
So, into the nutribullet, or food processor, goes:
1 full, ripe avocado
2 tablespoons of olive oil
2 cloves of garlic
Lemon juice (about half a lemon squeezed)
1 cup of fresh spinach
1/3 cup pasta water
Cracked black pepper, salt, basil to taste
(I added a splash of the white wine I was having for dinner too).
I then, simply, tossed the hot pasta with a tablespoon of butter and added the avocado mixture until fully coated, topped it with parm and mozzarella, and yum! I sat down to eat this with a glass of wine in under fifteen minutes. The longest part of this meal was boiling the water! So easy and so yummy! Creamy 10-minute Pasta Dish with Avocado | www.lovetheeveryday.com | This was so yummy and so simple. This will be a go-to meal in our house!
