My crafting has really gone by the wayside with all my cooking and baking this last week. Tonight I took to Pintrest and my fridge for dinner. I found this recipe for a pasta dish that uses an avocado, lemon and some garlic. Sounds simple enough, but I decided to change it up a little bit..
I have some mushrooms that needed using and some Parmesan reggiano that was just asking to be grated. The recipe may not look so pretty, mainly from the lovely avocado green, but it does taste good.
Avocado Lemon Spaghetti
1 ripe avocado
1 lemon, halved and juice squeezed out (can zest for garnish)
2-3 garlic cloves
a little extra lemon juice if desired
some salt and pepper
spaghetti, cooked to package instructions
optional: mushrooms, fresh grated Parmesan
Cook spaghetti (or other pasta) according to package instructions. Put everything except spaghetti (and mushrooms/Parmesan) into a food processor, blender, Vitamix, etc. Blend until it is the consistency you want, mine was a paste. Saute the mushrooms in pan with a little cooking spray then pour avocado mixture on top. Heat through, then add your pasta. Mix thoroughly and add Parmesan if desired. It will start to bubble a little which means it should be heated through, then serve and enjoy!
This is super fast and easy and has lots of flavor. Once you get over the bright green color it tastes pretty good.
