But then a glorious thing happened. I found this blog post that made something similar to a cream sauce, but it used avocados. Avocados! Perfect. This still has some cream in it, but for a dish to eat every once in a while, it's perfect. I'll even go so far as to say it's my new comfort food. Let me know what you think!
Pasta noodles, cooked
5 tablespoons of light cream
1 teaspoon of salt
2-3 tablespoons of lime juice
1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
3 pieces of bacon
1 small onion
3 cloves of garlic
Handful of Monterrey Jack cheese
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees, and lay the strips of bacon on a baking sheet. Cook for 20 minutes.
While the bacon is cooking, begin to cook the pasta noodles.
Heat olive oil over medium heat in a sauce pan.
Chop the onion and garlic and add to the pan. Saute until golden brown.
Put the avocados, light, salt, lime juice, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and cream in a blender. Once cooked, add the onion and garlic and ONE strip of bacon. Blend well. If you desire thinner sauce, add more cream.
|Looks gross, but it's amazingly delicious.|
Once the pasta is done cooking, drain and return to pan. Add the avocado mixture and cook on low heat for a few minutes. (The heat makes the avocado extra creamy!)
When ready, crumble the additional 2 pieces of bacon and cheese over each bowl. Enjoy!
