Quick Creamy Avocado Pasta

Another 15-minute pasta! This spinach and basil version is lovely too, however I had lots of avocadoes leftover (I know, crazy!) and I turned it into a creamy sauce. I used bean spaghetti because it’s gluten-free and full of protein (and it’s very tasty). This is a great dish to whip-up post workout and fuel your body! Topped with some hemp seeds, cherry tomatoes, fresh basil, nutritional yeast, pine nuts, balsamic glaze and vegan parmasan (or shredded almonds / cashews are nice too!)
