Creamy Avocado Spinach Sauce (Raw, Vegan & Grain Free)
I made this up on a whim one evening so we could break free from the standard marinara sauce over pasta. This is a super quick and easy sauce to make and if you have leftover gluten free pasta already in the fridge, then you won't have to do any cooking for dinner. It's quite flavorful too. Miss M initially turned her nose up at it because of the color, but, once she took a few bites she finally admitted that she liked it. (Your classic Green Eggs & Ham moment). It's also delicious over freshly roasted spaghetti squash for a completely grain free, plant based diet. Enjoy!

Puree everything until smooth in your food processor or blender. Toss over chilled gluten free pasta or freshly roasted spaghetti squash.
