Robust Recipe: Avocado Pasta Sauce
Avocado pasta sauce? Yes. It is delicious. Avocado is a wonderful source of heart healthy monounsaturated fat that help cholesterol levels come down and your healthy cholesterol go up! Not to mention garlic (crushed) has some great heart healthy benefits as well! Garlic helps open up blood vessels and decrease plaque build up. So serve yourself up a tasty bowl of whole grain pasta (make sure to get your fiber by using whole grain) with avocado sauce!
1 handful cherry tomatoes
2-3 garlic cloves
Splash of lemon and lime juice
If you want to add protein to the dish: 2 chicken breast or ~4-6 chicken tenderloin, cut into bite size pieces
Whole grain pasta
Directions: (Easiest directions ever.)
1) Puree avocado, tomatoes, garlic, lemon and lime juice together in food processor.
2) Cook chicken on a non stick pan. I added some lemon juice to the chicken while it was cooking and it gave it a fun zest.
3) Serve over cooked whole grain pasta.
Be sure to share and enjoy!
