I started by making the avocado sauce. You will need the following:
- 1 avocado
- ¼ cup olive oil
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup fresh flat leaf parsley
- 3-4 green onions (green parts)
- 1 garlic clove
- juice of 1 lemon
- freshly ground pepper to taste
I add all the above ingredients to my food processor and pulsed it until the sauce was smooth and creamy. I then set this aside.
I wanted to add some more veggies to my dish since I was skipping out on the zucchini noodles. I decided to add some cherry tomatoes and mushrooms. In a pan I tossed some olive and garlic. I then added a basket of mushrooms and cooked those, half way through I added some cherry tomatoes and cooked those until they began to pop.
Meanwhile I boiled water with some pink himalayan salt and added the red lentil penne. After this was cooked I drained the pasta and added it back to the pot holding the pasta. I added the Avocado Sauce and tossed them together. I then added these to a bowl and topped the pasta with the tomato and mushrooms. My boyfriend added parmesan while I stuck with a dairy free meal.
