15-Minute Veggie Loaded Creamy Avocado Pasta


This one is for the Alfredo lovers out there. You won’t believe how creamy and delicious this avocado pasta is – without any cream! Using avocado as a cream substitute means this pasta is loaded with healthy fats. As usual, this pasta recipe is also loaded with veggies to keep this dinner entrée balanced.


1.5-2 cups uncooked pasta of your choice
2 garlic cloves
¼ cup packed basil leaves
¼ cup Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts
2 Tbsp lemon juice
3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 ripe small avocado, putted and skin removed
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 cup frozen peas, thawed
2 cups spinach leaves
For serving:
Parmesan cheese (optional)
Freshly ground pepper


  1. Cook pasta in salted water according to instructions.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small food processor, add garlic, basil, lemon juice, olive oil, and avocado. Pulse until smooth. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  3. Once pasta has cooked, strain it and add the noodles back to the pot. Don’t worry about straining all of the water, a small amount will help the sauce stick.
  4. Place pot back on the heated element and add in sauce, peas, and spinach. Mix until contents are warmed throughout and spinach has wilted.
  5. Serve with Parmesan cheese (optional, but highly suggested!) and fresh ground pepper.
