I make a lot of pasta for dinners. It’s quick and easy to cook pasta, a protein, and some veggies. Pasta sauces can be a calorie trap, and ruin the nutritional value of everything else you put in your dish.
As an Alfredo sauce alternative, I like to make an avocado sauce instead.
What you need:
Pasta of your choice
Protein of your choice
Vegetable(s) of your choice
A little olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper- and maybe just a little fresh parmesan (it’s worth it)
What your do:
Cook your pasta, protein, and veggies according to your liking. Combine the cooked pasta, defrosted avocado cube, a splash of olive oil, about a tsp lemon juice, and a dash of salt and pepper. Stir these together until well combined. Top the pasta and sauce with your protein and veggies.
In the picture above, I made the pasta with pan fried salmon and asparagus. I also frequently make it with chicken and mushrooms.
