This recipe is: vegetarian, vegan, gluten free

Ingredients:

  • 10 oz pasta of choice (I used whole wheat linguine); or use gf pasta or veggie noodles
  • 1 avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 1.25 cups milk of choice (I used unsweetened almond)
  • 1/2 tsp salt, or more to taste
  • heaping 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • optional: 1-2 tsp olive oil
  • optional: nutritional yeast or parmesan for topping

Method:

  1. Cook the pasta according to package directions.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, combine avocado, milk, salt, and garlic powder (and olive oil, if using) in a food processor or blender, and blend until smooth.
  3. Once pasta is finished, pour the avocado sauce into a medium saucepan and heat until boiling. Immediately stir in the pasta and turn off the heat. Serve immediately.
