I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Easy Creamy Avocado Pasta Sauce

Need to eat more greens?  
You've got basil, spinach and avocado right here!

3 cloves garlic
2 tbsps fresh chopped basil
1/2 cup chopped spinach
2 tbsps lemon juice
2 tbsps olive oil
1 ripe avocado
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper
1 tbsp parmesan cheese
a handful of cherry tomatoes, sliced
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp butter

In a food processor, combine 2 chopped garlic cloves, basil and spinach.  Add lemon juice, olive oil and avocado, along with salt, pepper and parmesan.

Heat the olive oil and butter in a frying pan and add 1 minced garlic clove and the tomatoes. Brown lightly.

Once your pasta is cooked, drain and toss with the sauce.

If you make the sauce earlier in the day, just microwave it a minute or two.
Top the pasta with tomatoes and garlic.  I added some cooked chicken too.
Add more olive oil to taste. Serves 4
