I feel like it’s been a while since I shared a pasta recipe, but it’s comfort food season and this avocado pasta is the ultimate healthy comfort food!
It’s rich and creamy but made from a few pantry staple ingredients you probably already have on hand. It’s ready to eat as soon as your pasta is done cooking, so it’s the perfect 15 minute meal when you don’t really feel like cooking!
This recipe calls for my homemade cashew parmesan, but you can easily make it nut free by subbing for good old nutritional yeast or regular parmesan if you aren’t dairy free.
How to make this recipe
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook pasta according to package instructions.
Meanwhile, add all remaining ingredients to a food processor or high speed blender and process until smooth.
Taste and adjust seasonings as desired.
When the pasta is done, combine with the sauce. Garnish with fresh chopped basil, red pepper flakes, and a sprinkle of cashew parmesan.
Does it keep?
Once prepared, this avocado pasta will store in the fridge for about 3 days. It might start to brown slightly, which is just the nature of avocados, but the lemon juice will act as a preservative for at least a couple days!
You can reheat this recipe on the stove or microwave with a splash of oil, or just eat it cold like pasta salad! It’s delicious either way.
While this recipe is a great meal all on it’s own, if you’re looking for some more protein, you can serve it alongside my lemon pepper salmon, or stir some small white beans into the pasta when you add the sauce.
If you want to add some veggies, I suggest steamed or roasted broccoli or some fresh arugula. Peas also work well!
