Recipe!! Avocado Pasta

Hey, ya'll! 
Today I wanted to share with you a new recipe I made. 
I personally like to call this dish the "Avocada-lots-a-pasta"
(get it?)

I was in my kitchen, half broke and scratching my head trying to figure out what on earth to make for dinner, and how I could possibly make it healthy. 
Then it hit me.

PASTA IS MY LIFE. 
I will forever and ever be addicted to the angel hair, and the penne and anything you cook in a boiling pot of water and smother in butter or tomato basil sauce. 
Knowing I am trying to establish a healthy platform to build my eating habits on, I knew neither butter nor pasta sauce would cut it.  So, I decided on the next best creamy substance I could think of, Avocado! They are so good, and so good for you too! 

I will provide you with the recipe below
If you decide to make this dish or something like it, I would LOVE to see it!

Avocado Pasta Recipe! 

  • 1/2 box of whole wheat angel hair pasta (not pictured)
  • 1 bunch of broccoli florets 
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • Red pepper flakes
  • 2 avocados 
  • 2 Roma tomatoes diced
  • Diced onion
  • Mozzarella cheese (optional)
  • Garlic (optional)


Directions!

  • Cook pasta per directions on the box
  • In the meantime, cut the broccoli florets and toss them in a pan coated with non-stick cooking spray along with your onion, and diced garlic!
  • Mash the avocados in a bowl (kind of like you're making guacamole!) and add the diced Roma tomatoes! (season to taste) 
  • When the broccoli mixture is done (should be soft, but not mushy) mix into the avocado sauce
  • Add the cooked pasta, top with mozzarella cheese if desired!

Enjoy!
