Avocado Pasta Sauce

 

Avocado Pasta Sauce

Easy, nutritious and delicious with pasta! This sauce takes minutes to whip up and was a big hit with my little critic! It’s loaded with protein from the nuts, healthy fats from the avocado and bursting with vitamins and minerals.

It is also high in iron thanks to the spinach & cashew nuts. The vitamin C from the lemon juice helps to maximise the absorption of iron.
