Tortellini with Creamy Avocado Pasta Sauce

How about some tortellini covered in a creamy avocado pasta sauce?! Who doesn’t love a good pasta dinner? My kids will devour any and all pastas. They ask me to make at least one pasta dish per week.

One of our favorite kinds of pasta is cheese filled tortellini. I love making different sauces to toss pasta in so thought why not make a creamy avocado pasta sauce to toss some tortellini into?

What can I do with extra ripe avocados?

Make an avocado pasta sauce!

I have to admit that I was a bit nervous to make a pasta sauce using avocados. I mean, that’s not the first thing you think of when you think of avocados!

But oh my goodness. I can’t even describe how amazing this cream sauce turned out. It is so full of creamy, tangy, smooth, flavor. It’s so flavorful and incredible! I can’t wait to make it again and again.

Seriously, just look at that gorgeous creamy green color. What’s not to love?! We happen to love tortellini but this sauce works great with any pasta.

Serve with some extra parmesan cheese sprinkled on top and a little ground pepper and you have a fantastic dinner, any night of the week!

Can you warm avocados?

Absolutely! If you’ve never grilled an avocado before, you’re surely missing out. Another great way to cook avocados is making this avocado pasta sauce. It is absolutely delicious and because you’re adding in the lime juice, the sauce won’t brown.

In addition to the health benefits from the avocado, you’re also adding in spinach to this dish. I love being a sneaky mom and adding in veggies where I can. SO sneaky, right?! I hope you’ll give this pasta dish a try for dinner tonight. Enjoy!

What is the benefits of avocado?

Avocados are a great source of vitamins C, E, K, and B-6, as well as riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium, and potassium. They also provide lutein, beta-carotene, and omega-3 fatty acids. Although most of the calories in an avocado come from fat, don’t shy away!
