like I said, we love pasta.
On todays menu:
Alfredo sauce has long been a favorite of mine, and what’s not to love about it?
It’s creamy and cheesy and delicious,
adding avocado into make it even creamier and more delicious.
I kept it pretty simple, but you could jazz it up with some lime juice, cilantro and even jalapeños if you want it to have more of a kick.
But some days there is just a need for a GIANT bowl of simple pasta,
this is one of those days.
Grab your avocado and get cooking!
- 1 pound fettuccine
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1-2 teaspoons garlic (minced) I use Gourmet Gardens, it's super convenient
- 1½ cups heavy cream
- 1 cup parmesan cheese
- 1 avocado (diced)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- Cook fettuccine according to package instructions.
- While the pasta is cookies, in medium saucepan or skillet combine butter and garlic, and cook on medium heat for a minute, then whisk in heavy cream and parmesan cheese.
- Add diced avocado and salt,
- cook for 3-4 minutes or until the avocado has melted and the sauce thickens.
- (if you avocado is on the firmer side and you'd like the sauce really smooth, press the avocado through a fine strainer before adding, or pour sauce through strainer when finished cooking)
- Toss pasta in the sauce and serve
The entire pound of pasta fits in this bowl, it may look like one serving….but really even I would have trouble finishing the whole thing.
But I do love leftovers for breakfast, and it seems someone else in my family like that too!
