A light and creamy avocado fettuccine pasta made with gluten free, non-gmo, dairy free noodles!
What do you guys usually eat for lunch? I have been finding myself skipping lunch way too often because I don’t want to cook for just me. When I have salads or something in the fridge and ready to go it is no problem. But when I don’t, it sometimes just feels like too much effort.
So I have been experimenting with new recipes that only feed 1 or 2, as I am usually cooking for a crowd, I don’t have many that work for just me for lunch, and I am not a huge fan of leftovers. Anyway, I was on the House Foods website and saw their recipe for this creamy avocado fettuccine, and since I LOVE LOVE LOVE avocado, and I also love their Tofu Shirataki noodles, I knew it would be perfect for me!
And it totally was.
I started using my food processor for the first time in earnest less than a year ago, and now I feel like I use it for every recipe I post. But I just love it so much, and it makes life so easy. This recipe is no exception. You basically prepare the noodles according to package directions (follow instructions carefully, they have an “authentic” smell, but if you follow the directions they will taste awesome), and put your sauce ingredients in the food processor and process until smooth.
Then heat it up!
How awesome is that? Couldn’t be simpler, and gah…it is good. Lick the plate clean, have a second helping, wish you had cooked for the whole fam, and then been the only one eating it good! And it is pretty guilt free too. Gotta love an easy, healthy recipe full of good fats, protein, and flavor!
The noodles are made with tofu and have a lot going for them:
- Non-GMO Project Verified
- Kosher certified
- Low cal/low carb
- Cholesterol free
- Sugar free
- Dairy free
