    Delicious, creamy (with no milk or cream!), and healthy. Makes a great side dish, or top with grilled chicken for a complete meal. Pairs well with grilled chicken, grilled or baked pork chops, baked or sauteed fish, or boiled shrimp.

    Ingredients

    • 16 oz pasta (angel hair or thin spaghetti works best / can use penne or bow-tie if desired / smaller macaroni or elbow pasta does not work well for this dish)
    • 2 large avocados
    • 1 large tomato, diced
    • juice from one medium lemon or lime
    • 1 clove garlic, grated
    • 2 tbsp sliced toasted almonds
    • 1 tbsp sliced black olives
    • 1 tsp black pepper
    • 1/2 tsp salt

    Directions

    1. Prepare pasta according to package directions and drain, reserving 1/2 cup water from cooking.
    2. Dice avocados in a large bowl.
    3. Add lemon or lime juice, garlic, pepper, and salt.
    4. Mash with a fork.
    5. Stir in 1/4 cup reserved pasta water and mix thoroughly.
    6. Toss in cooked pasta.
    7. Add additional water 1 tbsp at a time if needed to thin sauce.
    8. Gently toss in tomato, almonds, and olives
    9. Top individual servings with grated Parmesan cheese and/or green onions (chives) if desired.
