raisingtexas #dinner tonight: Avocado Pesto Pasta from @withpeanutbutterontop.
She does chicken in her recipe and I had some leftover that I added in for the kids. To have an honest moment, we are fighting three #oneyearmolars that are all trying to come in at once. It's a little stressful and sleep deprived at our house. I didn't feel like grilling more chicken so the adult version was #meatless. The sauce (recipe below) was mixed in with 100% #wholewheat #organic #pastashells, chopped #creoletomatoes, and grated #parmesan. The #tomatoes actually added a nice flavor to the dish and me + parm= true love.

Overall a solid, easy and healthy recipe. I had most of the ingredients on hand. Both kids ate it without complaints. I added a little more #salt and fresh pepper for the adult version.
Sauce:
1 medium #avocado, peeled & pitted
1/2 cup 0% plain #Greekyogurt
2 cups baby #spinach
2 tbsp. #pesto sauce
1/2 tsp. #garlic powder
2 tbsp. #lime juice, or to taste
Salt & pepper, to taste

Directions:

Place a large pot of water over high heat, bring to a boil, add the pasta and cook according to the directions on the package. Once the pasta has been added to the water, combine all ingredients for the sauce into a food processor or blender and process until it reaches a creamy consistency. Remove the lid, scrape along the inside of the processor, cover and process an additional 1-2 minutes to ensure everything has blended. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed.
Once the pasta has cooked, strain the pasta & place into a serving dish and toss together with the avocado pesto sauce. And grilled chicken or tomatoes or parm or whatever else you want. I could spread this sauce on fresh French bread.

  •   ghadahalhumaid CREAMY CAULIFLOWER SAUCE
    Author: Pinch of Yum
    Serves: makes about 5 cups
    INGREDIENTS
    8 large cloves garlic, minced
    2 tablespoons butter
    5-6 cups cauliflower florets
    6-7 cups vegetable broth or water
    1 teaspoon salt (more to taste)
    ½ teaspoon pepper (more to taste)
    ½ cup milk (more to taste)
    INSTRUCTIONS
    Garlic: Saute the minced garlic with the butter in a large nonstick skillet over low heat. Cook for several minutes or until the garlic is soft and fragrant but not browned (browned or burnt garlic will taste bitter). Remove from heat and set aside.
    Cauliflower: Bring the water or vegetable broth to a boil in a large pot. Add the cauliflower and cook, covered, for 7-10 minutes or until cauliflower is fork tender. Do not drain.
    Puree: Use a slotted spoon to transfer the cauliflower pieces to the blender. Add 1 cup vegetable broth or cooking liquid, sauteed garlic/butter, salt, pepper, and milk. Blend or puree for several minutes until the sauce is very smooth, adding more broth or milk depending on how thick you want the sauce. You may have to do this in batches depending on the size of your blender. Serve hot! If the sauce starts to look dry, add a few drops of water, milk, or olive oil.
    NOTES
    I like to add a little bit of olive oil for the flavor and to help keep the sauce really smooth. Several other readers have mentioned that they really liked the addition of Parmesan cheese as well. 2w
