Yield: 3-4 servings

Ingredients:
  • ½ medium sweet onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil, separated
  • 2 red or orange bell peppers, chopped
  • 1 cup baby spinach, packed
  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • ½ cup shredded parmesan, plus extra for garnish
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • ¼ tsp salt (or to taste)
  • 12 oz chickpea pasta (fettucine, shells, or bowtie styles would work well)
  • 12oz. raw shrimp
  • 2 Tbsp butter
 
Directions:
  • Cook pasta using instructions on the package. Save about ½ cup of pasta water.
  • Using a medium pan, sauté onion and garlic in 1 Tbsp olive oil on medium heat until onions become soft/clear, about 10-12 min.
  • Add spinach and cover, reducing to medium low heat. Allow to cook until all spinach is wilted, about 5 minutes. Transfer cooked mixture to a blender and set aside.
  • Using the same medium pan, sauté chopped bell peppers in 1 Tbsp olive oil on medium-low heat for about 5-7 minutes.
  • While peppers are cooking, add avocado, yogurt, lemon juice, parmesan, cayenne pepper, black pepper, and salt to the blender. Blend until smooth.
  • Add sauce and cooked peppers to the cooked pasta and stir, adding pasta water 1 Tbsp at a time if sauce seems too thick.
  • Cook the shrimp as desired.
