Spinach Fettuccine with Creamy Spinach, Avocado & Feta Sauce

INGREDIENTS

1 lb dry pasta or some homemade Spinach Fettuccine

1/2 cup walnuts (or pecans or almonds)

5-5 oz feta cheese (or a 1x2x3 inch block) - plus extra as garnish

1 avocado

10 basil leaves - plus extra as garnish

6 cloves of garlic (or less)

1/4 cup olive oil

1 tsp salt

1 TBS pepper

water

4 -5 packed cups of spinach

1 tomato - diced as garnish

DIRECTIONS

Toast the nuts in a dry pan, stirring constantly, for a few minutes.  Once they start to smoke a bit but before they brown (or burn) remove them from the heat.

In a food processor, blend the nuts, feta, garlic, basil, oil and S&P until pureed.  Add the avocado & blend smooth.  Then add the spinach, a cup or two at a time & blend.  Add a little water if it gets too thick.  Once all the spinach is incorporated - you are done.

To assemble - simply cook your pasta, drain & toss with a quantity of the sauce to suit your taste.  I do not like a heavy amount of sauce & this is so flavorful - you can go light with it.  Garnish with extra feta, chopped basil & diced tomatoes.  Grind fresh pepper over it & chow down!
