Zucchini Pasta with Avocado Cream Sauce

April 25, 2012  |  Food  |  Share

I made this on a whim and didn’t do a good job of taking pictures. But, it is a pretty simple recipe.

Zucchini Pasta with Avocado Cream Sauce

Ingredients:
4 Small Zucchini
2 Tablespoons of coconut oil
1 Avocado
Juice from 1/2 a Lemon
Salt n Pepper
Handful fresh basil
2 Tablespoons olive oil
3 Tablespoons coconut milk or just more olive oil
Olives to top pasta with, chopped.

Directions:
Cut the zucchini into noodles. You can do this by hand or use a mandolin. Toss the Zucchini with salt and set aside. This will help it dry out a little.

You can now chop your olives and start the cream sauce.

Add your avocado, lemon juice,olive oil and coconut milk and blend in your food processor or blender until creamy. Add in your basil and more olive oil if needed.

Heat a pan with 2 coconut oil and toss in zucchini. You will only need to cook it a few minutes and medium heat. I like my zucchini to still be a little stiff. When the noodles are done throw your sauce into the pan while it is still a little hot and mix. Serve your pasta with some chopped olives and some pepper.

  1. This looks great! I pinned it: http://pinterest.com/pin/91690542383748508/

    Do you think it would be good with some chicken or shrimp added in?

  2. This looks both very easy and very tasty. And I like the idea of adding chicken or shrimp in the last comment! I love anything with avocado in it, so I’m sure I’d love this dish!

    KYLE!!! I made this last Saturday. OMG, sooo good! Jeff does not like zuchinni and I have made so many things with this and he has loved it! This avocado cream sauce is so good, I used some leftovers in my eggs the next morning. Thanks for all the yummy recipes!

  4. Great idea! I tried it raw! It was EXCELLENT!I modified it a little. I added a couple cloves of fresh garlic to the sauce in the blender and a dash of cayenne, as well as oregano to spice it up. I garnished with garden fresh cherry tomatoes too. Thanks for sharing. Great raw food recipe!

  5. Very good blog you have here but I was curious if you knew of any forums that cover the same topics talked about in this article?
    I’d really love to be a part of group where I can get feed-back from other experienced individuals that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Bless you!

  6. I made this and I LOVE IT. I mixed in some pesto chicken (with olive oil because I can only stand so much coconut oil). Seriously, thank you. This is delicious, who needs alfredo sauce.. no one.
