Creamy Super Green Pasta

This super green pasta only takes 15 minutes to make, its super easy which is great if your looking for a quick, nutritious, easy meal to make mid-week! I love this pasta! Its packed with so many vitamins & minerals including iron & calcium, how amazing is that? OH and can’t forget that it’s super deeelicious too!

Serves 2

Ingredients

  • 150g dried pasta (2 servings)
  • 100g frozen peas
  • 100ml dairy-free milk
  • 1/2 ripe avocado
  • 2 small cloves garlic
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 60g fresh spinach
  • 1 tsp nutritional yeast (optional)
  • salt & pepper, to taste

Method

  1. Cook the pasta according to packet instructions. Cook the peas in the same pan as the pasta to cook at the same time.
  2. To make the creamy green sauce, add the milk, garlic, avocado, lemon juice, nutritional yeast (if using) & spinach to a blender and blitz until super smooth and creamy! (I just used a handstick blender to blend mine)
  3. Once the pasta and peas has cooked, drain the water from the pan then add them back into the pan.
  4. Pour the super green creamy sauce over the pasta and peas, season with salt & pepper, stir well on a low heat setting to warm everything up.
  5. Serve with cherry tomatoes and sprinkle with more nutritional yeast. ENJOY!
