Creamy Avocado Pasta

Right after Wesley's first birthday something reversed and he went from being a bottomless pit for just about any food to being even more picky than Talmage was! But this pasta is a dish that both of my kids gobble up, believe it or not. It is a stand-by for a super quick, nutritious meal. The avocado makes a wonderfully creamy sauce without the addition of cream or butter. We love it!

Recipe adapted from Two Peas and Their Pod

1 12 oz box pasta (I use whole wheat)
3 avocados, pitted and peel removed
3 Tbsp. fresh squeezed lime juice
3 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 1/2 tsp. kosher salt (or to taste)
freshley ground black pepper, to taste

Cook pasta according to package directions. Combine remaining ingredients in food processor and grind until smooth. Toss sauce with pasta and serve warm.
