This time I bring you not one, but two different entries in one post, all for your enjoyment.
Firstly, a delicious gluten-free creamy avocado pasta recipe to indulge your tummy and your senses, from Spring to Autumn (to be honest, anytime you fancy a creamy avocado).
Secondly, a review of the gluten-free pasta brand Gallo.
I came up with this recipe one of those heart-warming lazy late Summer – early Autumn afternoons, when the temperatures are still warm, but the evenings are getting softly chill and you fancy to eat some more soul-warming food. (I’m saying this because, I don’t know about you, but for me hot, warm summer days call for light and fresh meals. The warmer it gets, the less I can digest * insert “I don’t know” emoticon *)
I had an avocado that seemed to be at the perfect ripen point, ready to be eaten. However, I was still not very sure what to do with it (perhaps a guacamole sauce to use as appetizer?) or even if to save it for later and do some pasta instead, which I was also craving. But this heart-healthy avocado was calling me, so I decided to do a little experiment and mix them both: an inspired guacamole sauce with some pasta.
Sometimes, the best recipes are the ones that come in on the spur of the moment, and this one turned to be a beautiful creation. Occasionally, they are a complete fail, but that’s the beauty of creating recipes, getting creative in the kitchen and see how to best combine flavours, textures and taste. I truly enjoy the cuisine and coming up with new delicious recipes, and of course, sharing them with you, my dear readers.
As expected, the avocado didn’t disappoint: its creaminess made a fantastic base for the pasta recipe and the taste was exquisite. The end result of this creamy avocado pasta dish: superb.
One thing that I am quite proud of is that the avocado sauce is naturally lactose-free. As coeliac disease has a high association with lactose intolerance, I find it dishearting when I see that many store-made sauces have milk (or other dairy derivatives) added to the recipe. Why to do that unless strictly necessary? On top of that, this recipe is gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan, soy-free, sugar-free and as just mentioned, lactose-free.
This recipe can be adapted throughout the seasons: it can be served as a warm dish (perfect for chilly weather) or a cold salad (perfect for those summery days)
I hope that you enjoy this fantastic creamy avocado pasta recipe as much as I did.
