Creamless Fettuccine Alfredo with California Avocados

Creamless Fettuccine Alfredo with...

Author: Tasting Table Content Studio

As far as pasta sauces go, traditional Alfredo presents a tough challenge: It’s at once delicious enough yet far too heavy to eat every day. What’s a carb lover to do? Enter ripe California Avocados, which serve as a nutritious substitute to Alfredo’s traditional cream. By using them strategically, you’ll land yourself a luscious but lighter pasta dish in no time at all.

In this recipe, a good squeeze of lemon gives the avocado sauce a hint of brightness; black pepper lends a touch of spice; chopped parsley and toasted pine nuts add a textural layer; and a sprinkling of Parm offers a nutty, umami-rich finale. With a pasta this good, you’ll soon be twirling the night away.
