Avocado is perfect for making pasta sauce – rich in healthy fats, tastes great paired with basil, is a deliciously creamy dairy-free alternative and carries a lot of nutrients.
I love a good organic tomato sauce on pasta, but having the same sauce every time doesn’t cut it for my freakishly foodie nature. Of course I could buy other supermarket pasta sauces, but have you ever noticed how many strange additives there are in there? Bleh.
It’s much healthier to make your own pasta sauce than to buy some additive-stuffed sauce that’s been standing on supermarket shelves for months.
Avocado & basil unite to form a creamy yet refreshing green sauce that you can whip up in literally 2 minutes. This “pasta” sauce tastes great on:
- tortellini (filled with organic cheese or ham)
- zucchini pasta
- oven-baked salmon
The best way to make this recipe is to taste as you go and adjust ingredients accordingly. I play around with the measurements each time, which makes the sauce dynamic.
👉 Start slow on the pine nuts, too much can quickly make the sauce bitter.
