I used to make avocado with pasta and then when I switched to a keto lifestyle I changed many of my regular foods to be ones that would fit my new diet. I love pasta and had to find a way to enjoy my favorite sauces. Really I have learned that I don’t so much like pasta but I like the sauces that I put on the pasta. I have switched from regular pasta to zucchini noodles instead for getting my pasta fix and loving every minute of it. My most recent love is this creamy avocado pasta.
Made with simple ingredients this creamy avocado sauce tastes amazing on top of zucchini noodles!

What Is Avocado Pasta
Avocado pasta is actually a creamy avocado sauce. I use zoodles to keep it low carb, but it also works with traditional pasta if you are looking for a way to add some healthiness to a carb loaded meal. This is a vegetarian sauce that can easily be made vegan when swapping out the Parmesan cheese.
The flavor is spot on with this sauce. You can serve it hot or cold so that also makes it versatile. You can use this avocado pasta sauce as dressing for a “pasta” salad or use it as part of a healthy “pasta” dinner.
Why You will love this recipe

Creamy delicious sauce. This avocado pasta sauce is so creamy, it reminds me of an alfredo sauce but super healthy compared to it. With a hint of tangy flavor mixed with the creamy avocados, the rich sauce is just simple and delicious.
Tips and Variations
Use Keto Pasta. I like using zucchini noodles but you can totally use your favorite keto pasta in place of the zucchini spaghetti noodles.
Use Fresh Avocado. You want to use a ripe avocado when you are making this recipe.
Add cherry tomatoes. After mixing the zoodles with the sauce you can also mix in some chopped cherry tomatoes.
Add some spice. If you want to give your avocado keto pasta a kick then you can add some red pepper flakes, chili flakes or chili powder before blending the sauce.
Mix while zoodles are warm. I always recommend adding the sauce over the spiralized zucchini pasta when everything is warm, even if you plan on serving it cold. The zoodles and the sauce are easier to work with and dressing the zoodles when it is warm lets the zoodles absorb more flavor from the avocado sauce.
How to pick a ripe avocado
When you’re choosing now avocados to make a sauce just remove the stem of the avocado if it’s brown the avocado ripened too much. You want to have a slight give to the skin when you press on them. If you need to speed up the ripping you can place them in a brown paper bag with a banana overnight.
How To Store
Avocado pasta sauce is best when it is served right away. Unlike a tomato based pasta sauce, it does not get better with time. It starts to mellow and you might need to add more seasoning, like lemon, to bring the freshness back. So i suggest making and enjoying this avocado sauce recipe the same day you make it.
