Avocado Alfredo Sauce
Alicia Silverstone shared this recipe on her blog last week so I tried it out. It originally comes from EcoSalon, and it looked absolutely delicious.
I made up a large pot of pasta - rotini was what I had in the pantry.
Then I made the "alfredo" sauce by combining avocados, fresh basil, garlic cloves, lemon juice, sea salt and pepper in the food processor.
I drained the pasta and tossed it with the sauce, then topped it off with Kalamata olives and a little lemon zest.
It was really good. David and I loved it. Brennan liked it even better the next day, warmed up for an after school snack.
David was pretty certain I had made this dish before, so I looked here on the blog and lo and behold - a different version of this same meal - although this other version was more of a pesto and included pine nuts. You can find it here.
