This pasta sauce may not cut too many calories compared to most, but it is certainly a lot healthier. Avocados contain healthy fats, fiber, and vitamins and the thickness of the avocado allows you to cut creams and flour most creamy sauces contain. The amounts in this recipe make enough sauce for about 4 servings of pasta.
(The second lime, bacon, and pasta are for an avocado bacon pasta dish - directions at bottom of page).
To make the pasta as healthy as possible use a 100% whole grain pasta when serving. You can cook up a few slices of bacon and squeeze lime in the skillet when cooking, chop up and add to the pasta to add some crunch and saltiness to counteract the creamy soft taste of avocado.
This recipe requires only a few ingredients and was so delicious. Slow cooking the sauce and meat together gives it a very rich flavor - and it makes great leftovers for a few days! I served this with rice and sweet potato discs (recipe at bottom of this page), which tasted great. You could also make a larger quantity and this would make a great party snack!
