Just Another Meatless Monday

I’ve been meaning to try this recipe for avocado pasta for a long time. I made it the other nite as a side for some pan roasted salmon with wilted baby kale and spinach.

But it is ridiculously easy and satisfying way to prepare pasta and will absolutely be enough for a meatless entree, especially if you use whole grain pasta, and add a big salad. Drop diced avocado into your food processor with as much minced garlic and fresh basil as you like. Add about a tablespoon of good olive oil and salt and pepper to taste.

As Jamie Oliver would say, ” give it a whazz” until smooth, and toss with your cooked spaghetti. Reserve some pasta water in case you need to thin it out a bit. No cream, no butter, but very rich tasting! The Hubs loved it but reports that it doesn’t make the best leftover for microwaving, so make just what you will eat at one sitting!
