Ingredients
  • 1 pound gluten free short pasta
  • 3 whole avocados pitted and peeled
  • 1/2 cup baby spinach
  • 1 whole shallot
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch crushed red pepper
  • 1 whole lime juiced. At least 2 tablespoons worth
  • 1 dash olive oil
  • 1 jar roasted red peppers drained and thinly sliced, 12 ounce size
  • 1 can artichoke hearts roughly chopped, 8.5 ounce size
Instructions
  1. First, get a large pot of water on the stove to boil. Once it is boiling, salt it generously and add the pasta. Cook it until tender for about 6-8 minutes, reserve about 2 tablespoons of the cooking water, then drain it. While the water comes to a boil and the pasta cooks, make the sauce. Combine the avocado, spinach, shallot, garlic, salt, pepper and lime juice in a food processor and run it until it becomes smooth and creamy. 

  2. Then heat up the olive oil in a large, deep skillet over medium high heat. Cook the roasted red peppers and artichokes in it for just a couple of minutes, then add the sauce and reserved pasta cooking water. Let that all cook together for another couple of minutes for the flavors to marry. Finally, toss in the cooked pasta and stir it all together well. Scoop it into bowls and serve immediately. Enjoy!
