Creamy Avocado Pasta

This creamy avocado pasta is so simple. We wanted to make it as straightforward as possible so we reduced as many steps as we could, while making sure there’s still tons of flavour.

We often turn to this recipe, or variations of it, after a tiring day at work. The sort of day when you return home and you don’t have the patience to spend hours in the kitchen.

The creamy avocado sauce is lovely and fresh, which is packed with lots of healthy fats and oils. The garlic is great for the immune system, while the asparagus and peas have lots of vitamins.

And we really encourage you to put your on twist on this recipe. Depending what’s in season where you live, try boiling a variation of vegetables in the pasta. Sometimes we add a small amount of chili to the sauce to give it a tiny kick!
