Meatless Monday: Creamy Avocado-Lime Pasta

Creamy, thick, and rich with lots of garlic flavor. This pasta dish is sure to please. The avocado works wonderfully in this recipe to create a sauce so thick and creamy, that you will think there is cream hiding in there. 

 Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup of dry shell pasta of your choice
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • handful of cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 3 Tbsp. of veganaise
  • 1 tsp. garlic paste
  • salt & pepper 
  • chopped cilantro for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  1. Cook pasta according to the package instructions. Drain well, set aside to cool.
  2. Cut and peel the avocado and remove the pit. Put it in a food processor together with chopped cilantro, lime juice, veganaise and garlic paste. 
  3. Blend it until it’s creamy. Add salt and pepper to taste. (Cover it with plastic wrap and keep it in a refrigerator if you have time.)
  4. Transfer the avocado sauce to a medium sized bowl. Add cooked pasta and toss them well. Sprinkle chopped cilantro on top.
