Creamy Avocado Recipe

A few weeks ago I came across this Creamy Avocado Pasta recipe. It sounded so good and the recipe is very easy. It’s perfect for a work night meal. I added some bacon and tomato for a little flavor. Plus I just thought bacon, avocado and tomato sounded yummy!

Recipe: Bacon Avocado Pasta

Ingredients

  • 1 Ripe Avocado, pitted
  • 1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
  • 1 garlic clove, pressed
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Dried Basil
  • 2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 4 Slices Bacon, cooked and crumbles
  • 1 Roma Tomato, diced
  • 6 oz Pasta

Instructions

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions.
  2. Combine avocado, lemon juice, garlic, salt, basil and olive oil into a bowl. Place into a food processor or use a hand blender to mix until creamy. It just takes a few seconds.
  3. When pasta is done cooking, drain. Apply avocado sauce to hot pasta. Mix in crumbled bacon and top with diced tomato.

Tips

  • In the summer months, substitute fresh basil from your garden!
  • If you want to save on calories, omit the bacon.
  • Add Parmesan cheese on top for extra flavor.
