Who knew pasta can be healthy? Will this one is!
If you are looking for an easy and flavorful pasta salad that’s mayo-free, and no added oil, you’ve come to the right place.

Plus, with avocado as a replacement for the mayo or oil, you’ll have a super creamy side dish that’s loaded with heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids, fiber, and a slew of vitamins and minerals.

Ingredients For This Pasta:

The ingredient list is pretty simple – all you need is pasta, beans, tomatoes. However, these are optional, you can use anything you like to compliment your creamy pasta.
For the dressing – you need spinach, avocado, onion, lime juice, salt, and pepper.

Storing the leftovers:
This pasta salad is best enjoyed on the day it’s made but will keep for up to 2 more days in the fridge if needed. I like to put this pasta in a container and top it with some crispy tofu bites for a complete lunch at work.
