Creamy Green Pasta Sauce or Avocado Pasta Sauce

image

Avocados are in season here and my boys don’t eat them!

That is, they don’t eat them knowingly!

Enter creamy green pasta sauce, easy to make and full of flavour.

For my gluten free option, I use gluten free pasta.

Serves 4-6.

Ingredients

500g dried spaghetti, gluten free if needed

6 ripe avocados

2 lemons

1-2 teaspoons olive oil

2 cloves garlic, chopped finely

1 green chilli, deseeded and finely diced

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

saly and pepper

lemon wedges to serve

Method

Cook your pasta as per the instructions.

Heat a small frying pan over a medium heat, add the oil.

Add the garlic and chopped chilli to the frying pan, stir and turn off heat.

In a processor of stick blender, add the avocado flesh, lemon juice, cayenne and the contents of the frying pan.

Process to a smooth paste, taste for flavour, season with salt and pepper.

Once the pasta is cooked, drain well.

Pour the avocado paste into the pasta, stir well and serve with lemon wedges.
