Zucchini + Spaghetti with Creamy Avocado Sauce

Today, I’m sharing a pretty original recipe with you! Wheat and zucchini spaghetti with avocado sauce! Yes, we’re not used to eating pasta with this kind of sauce, but I wanted to explore a different path! And it’s a great surprise: the sauce is so creamy, it’s delicious and very tasty! But let’s think… you like spaghetti, don’t you? Do you also like zucchini and avocado? Then you’ll like this recipe, trust me !

The spaghetti in this recipe is a mixture of standard wheat spaghetti and zucchini spaghetti. I made the zucchini spaghetti using a julienne peeler, which I run along the entire length of the zucchini to make long filaments. If you have a spiralizer it’s even better! If you don’t have either one, try cutting the zucchini into thin slices lengthwise and then into fine filaments to make like spaghetti.

By the way, if you want to make a really light and low carb dish, don’t use wheat spaghetti! Make this recipe only with zucchini! It will also be excellent!

For the avocado sauce, try to find well matured avocados, it will only get better! You can also very well add any spices you like.

Don’t hesitate to add cheese on top, either gruyère or parmesan cheese for a little more taste!
