I think it’s safe to say that pasta & good sauce is one of the ultimate comfort foods. Sometimes it can be a little heavy on the stomach though, ya know?! I am always looking for ways to get in extra veggies and “good stuff” into my kids’ bodies without fighting about shoving broccoli down their throats. Christine just so happened to whip up this spinach avocado sauce in a pinch and poured it over Banza pasta. After getting a huge thumbs-up verdict from her husband, I think I now have to try it not only for myself but my kids.
Spinach Avocado Sauce
Adapted from Jar of Lemons
- 1 avocado
- 1/2 cup spinach
- 1/4 olive oil
- 1/4 nut milk (whatever your preference! Christine said she used coconut milk because that’s all she had)
- 2 teaspoons dried basil
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 clove of garlic
- Salt & pepper to taste
- Optional: add in a little pecorino romano!
Combine ingredients in a food processor or blender until smooth. Pour over your favorite pasta & enjoy! Adding in your favorite protein to this dish would also be delicious.
Side note: Do not heat this! Since there is avocado in this sauce it will turn brown if you heat. If serving over warm pasta it will heat up on it’s own!
