This editions recipe:

Avocado Cream Pasta Sauce





1/2 box whole wheat thin spaghetti or pasta of choice

1/2 lemon

1 avocado, halved and pitted

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 clove garlic

1 bunch parsley

Salt and pepper


Bring salted water to a boil in a medium sized pot. Add in your pasta, reduce heat to medium, and cook until al dente, about 8-10 minutes.

Meanwhile, make the sauce by placing the garlic cloves, lemon juice and olive oil into a food processor. Process until smooth. Now add in the pitted avocado, herbs and salt. Process until smooth and creamy. When pasta is done cooking, drain and rinse in a strainer and place pasta into a large bowl.  Pour on sauce and toss until fully combined. Garnish with lemon zest and black pepper. Serve immediately. 


*Dish does not reheat well due to the avocado in the sauce.
