Creamy Avocado Pasta Sauce

Rich and decadent, creamy avocado pasta sauce is quite possibly my favorite pasta sauce. The best part? I don’t even have to feel guilty about eating it!

Creamy Avocado Pasta Sauce is basically a healthy alfredo sauce. Magically, while they don’t share any of the same ingredients, they taste wildly similar.

Thick Greek yogurt with creamy avocado serves as the base for a garlic and lemon juice, providing the flavor and acidity we love in a nice alfredo sauce.

What makes this avocado sauce even better? It is ready in just 15 minutes. FIFTHTEEN minutes, foodie friends!
