Creamy, avocado & walnut pasta

Hi everyone, I hope you are having a nice week!

Do you ever crave a big bowl of creamy pasta? I do, a lot. Today I had one of those days where I couldn’t get pasta out of my mind. While looking through my cupboards, I noticed I had two ripe avocados and as I don’t like wasting food, I wondered if I could use them to create a healthy pasta dish.

This isn’t a dish I had created or eaten before, so I had to play about with the flavors a bit. I am pleased to tell you that I cooked a delicious bowl of vegan avocado pasta.

As you can see it’s a pretty easy dish to make, and doesn’t take long to cook either. Avocados are perfect for a thick sauce because of their creamy texture. This is also a dairy free avocado pasta, so vegan’s can enjoy it 🙂  Both avocados and walnuts have a number of health benefits too. Both boost brain productivity, are good for skin, hair and nails and also provide a number of vitamins including K, C & E. Walnuts and avocados are also high in fibre which can help with weight loss.

Why don’t you try this the next time you have a pasta craving? It’s the perfect, guilt free comfort food!
