Pasta with Creamy Avocado Sauce

As you can all tell by now, I love avocado.  I have been using avocados now at least once a week.  There was a recipe going around that used avocado pasta sauce, and I was dying to try it.  This is an awesome alternative to the normal pasta sauces.

Serving size- 4-6 people
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time:20 minutes
Recipe adapted from: The Comfort of Cooking


  • One 16oz box of pasta (your choice I used bow tie noodles)
  • 2 avocados pitted and scooped
  • 2 teaspoons of lemon juice
  • 5 cloves of garlic (minced)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of chopped basil
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

  1. In a large pot boil your water, and once boiling add your pasta.
  2. While your pasta is cooking combine all ingredients, except the Parmesan cheese in your food processor (if you don't have a food processor a blender will work)
  3. Once pasta is done cooking add your avocado mixture to the pasta, and your Parmesan cheese

Korean Beef

Chinese is right up there as one of my favorite foods.  I love all types of stir fry's and have been looking for different ones.  I found this recipe the other night and I thought I would give it a try.  It was very different then the typical stir fry because it is much sweeter.  The ground beef gets very tender and is awesome served over white rice.

Prep time:10 minutes
Cook time:15 minutes
Recipe adapted from:


  • 2 pounds ground beef

  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 12 sliced green onions for topping
  • White rice for serving
  1.  In a large pan brown your ground beef with the garlic and the sesame oil
  2. .Drain the ground beef and add brown sugar, soy sauce, ginger, and crushed red pepper.  Return back to the pan
