Zucchini Pasta with Avocado Sauce

The avocado sauce for this zucchini pasta is dreamily creamy and silky, and the grated parmesan on top adds a nutty and salty bite.  If you do not own a spiralizer, you could certainly use a vegetable peeler to make long, thin fettucine-type zucchini noodles.  Scrumptious!

 Why (the science):   It’s astonishing to me that a serving of zucchini pasta with avocado sauce has  10 grams of protein, 120% of your daily vitamin C, and almost 50% of your daily fiber recommendation!...So long, white pasta!  Don’t be alarmed by the fat content here, because avocado and olive oil are monounsaturated fats, meaning they are heart-healthy J  Olive oil even contains antioxidants!



2 zucchinis

1 ½ tablespoons olive oil

2 avocados

1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Salt and pepper to taste


¼ cup Parmesan cheese


Spiralize the zucchini according to your spiralizer instructions, or use a vegetable peeler to make long, thin zucchini strips.

Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a sauté pan over medium heat.  Add zucchini and sauté for 3 minutes, tossing to coat in the oil.

Meanwhile, add avocado, ½ tablespoon olive oil, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper to a large bowl.  Mix until smooth.

Add zucchini to the large bowl, and toss until coated evenly with avocado sauce.

Divide between two bowls, and top with grated parmesan cheese.
