Avocado Alfredo

Tuesday, March 24, 2015

Hendrix isn't the biggest fan of plain avocado. The only way he seems to enjoy it is in smoothies or spread within the layers of grilled cheese. Another mom on Instagram recommended trying Avocado Alfredo on pasta. All of the recipes I found online included too many ingredients or were huge servings. This is a quick recipe I came up with for a small amount of pasta. I didn't want to smear his pasta with a ton of sauce just in case he didn't like it so I saved a bit to make a sandwich tomorrow.

1/2 ripe avocado, mashed
1/4 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tbsp olive oil
Pinch of salt
Dash of pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp dry basil leaves
1 tsp parmesan cheese
1 tsp whole milk yogurt

In a warm, small frying pan add ingredients.  Once well combined, add cooked pasta and mix. We chose to mix three cheese raviolis with them.

I was hungry while feeding Hendrix dinner so I ate a few of his raviolis! It was my second time having avocado, the first time I thought it was gross but I loved having it this way!
