Fettucine Avocado | Vegan Pasta Recipes

Ever wonder if you can convert something sinfully delicious to something deliciously healthy. Yes you can and I did too. Avocado to the rescue..  This is a healthier version of the classic Fettuccine Alfredo without all the not-so-good fats from the cream, butter and cheese. The creaminess and the fat in the avocado makes it a great alternative for the butter and cream in this recipe. Avocados are high in fiber and magnesium. It is true that avocado is high in fat but those are the good fats that is very good for your heart. 
Check out my recipe for Guacamole.

Serves - 1-2
Dry Fettuccine pasta - 1/4 lb
Ripe Avocado - 1 small
Lemon juice - 1-1/2 tbsp
Extra Virgin Olive oil - 2 tbsp
Salt - a pinch
Pepper - a pinch
Cook the pasta in salted boiling water until done. Drain and reserve 1 cup of pasta water. Blend the avocado flesh, oil, lemon juice with salt and pepper. Add pasta water as needed to loosen the avocado puree. Transfer to a bowl and add the pasta. Toss well adding the pasta water as needed to loosen the sauce. Serve warm.
Notes: Add chopped parsley or basil as needed.
