Avocado Mint Alfredo Pasta

Avocados are god-sent. As healthy as they are, they mimic the decadence of many a favorite creamy salad dressing, pasta sauce or dip. And all that fat? Don’t worry ’bout it – your body knows what to do with it!

The mint adds a refreshing zest and the lemon cuts the avocado-ey taste, leaving behind a rich, fragrant pasta dish ready under 10 minutes.

The pasta is still warm and the sauce just the right balance of savory, zesty and light.

There should have been leftovers, but would I honestly let that happen?

Bon Appetit!
