I am currently obsessed with avocados. I never liked them until recently, but after having my son I am enjoying a whole new wave of tastes I never had before! Avocado is one of them, and not only can I now stand it, I LOVE it.

So when I heard that you can use avocado to make a pasta sauce that is creamy and rich like alfredo but without all those terrible calorie filled ingredients I decided to give it a go!

We loved it. It is a delicious creamy sauce, and it is the perfect summertime light meal with a little seasoned grilled chicken on top!

Fettuccine Avocado
Recipe Type: Main Dish
Author: Emily
Avocado sauce makes the perfect healthy substitute for Alfredo!
  • 2-3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • Cajun Seasoning
  • 1 pkg of fettuccine noodles
  • 2 avocados, seeded and scooped out of skin
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Sprinkle cajun seasoning onto both sides of the chicken breasts and grill or cook in a skillet with a little olive oil until cooked through, set aside.
  2. Fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil. Add the fettuccine to the water and cook as the package says. While the pasta is cooking, add avocado, olive oil, garlic, salt, lemon juice and parmesan cheese to a food processor. Pulse until the ingredients are smooth and creamy. Feel free to mix with a fork for a chunkier sauce.
  3. Strain the pasta, and combine with the sauce in a large bowl, until all the pasta has been covered.
  4. Slice the chicken thin.
  5. Top the pasta with a sprinking of parmesan cheese and sliced chicken.

This was a delicious simple dinner that took less than 30 minutes to make! Hope your family enjoys it too!
