Creamy Chicken Avocado Pasta

Creamy Chicken Avocado Pasta

It's hard to believe this pregnancy has 3 weeks left.  To be honest every time I'm pregnant the thought of cooking chicken in general is not something I loo forward to.  However this recipe did not require a ton of time in the kitchen and was very creamy with lots of flavor.  With the launch of the 21 day fix extreme my goal was to help others find recipes that are simple, tasty, 21 day fix approved and with little clean up.

This is it!!



6 ounces pasta, we used whole wheat spaghetti
1 large ripe Avocado, pitted and peel removed
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
 2 dashes of garlic powder
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro (optional I went without)
 shake of salt
Freshly ground black pepper


1. Bring water to a boil in a medium sized pot. Salt the water and add in your pasta, reduce heat to medium, and cook until Al Dente, about 8-10 minutes.
2. While the pasta is cooking, make the sauce by placing the avocado, garlic, lemon juice, cilantro, salt and pepper into a food processor or blender. Process until smooth and creamy.
3. When pasta is done cooking, drain and place pasta into a large bowl. Add the sauce to the pasta and toss until pasta is well coated. Season with additional salt and pepper, if desired. Serve immediately.
Note: This pasta dish is best eaten the day it is made.
