Creamy Avocado Pasta
I got the idea for this pasta in the typical way - Pinterest. This pin, to be exact. I love avocados and I thought this would make the perfect Sunday lunch. The sauce also has spinach and I used "veggie pasta", so it was definitely vegetable packed.
Reed and I both agreed it was actually really good! The sauce was a little bland at first, but after I added a few extra shakes of seasoning mix, it was much better. I use a spice mix that basically tastes like seasoned salt and it can add a little flavor to virtually anything.
-1 box of pasta (we added the sauce to our bowls separately and then saved the extra noodles)
-1 ripe avocado
-1 cup of spinach
-3/4 cup of pasta water
-1/4 cup cilantro (the pinterest recipe calls for basil, but I do what I want)
-a few shakes of garlic powder
-a few shakes of a general seasoning mix with salt
Throw all the sauce ingredients in the blender and blend away! Pour onto separated bowls of pasta. I added chopped tomato and Parmesan cheese on top.
