Black Bean & Avocado Pasta with Lime

This dish really just hits the spot when you want a lil’ pasta! Creamy from the avocado, this feels rich and decadent. And at only 275 calories for the entire meal, not bad for those who are afraid of the calories adding up! Some people may prefer this a tad sweeter–if so, be sure to use a fruity vinegar and you could sprinkle a tad more sugar or stevia.  We suggest rounding this out with a nice fresh and crunchy salad. Enjoy!

Serves 4
Ingredients
4 ounces whole wheat rigatoni
Juice ½ lime (or lemon)
2 teaspoon sugar or stevia
1 tsp vinegar (wine vinegar or fruity vinegar work well)
1 Tbsp olive oil, and olive oil in a spray container for spritzing
1 cup spinach or kale
1 can black beans
½ large avocado, chopped
1 large tomato chopped
Sea Salt to taste
Cracked pepper

 

Directions
1. Prepare pasta according to pacakage directions
2. Mix lime juice, vinegar, stevia, and teaspoon of olive oil in small bowl.
3. Place spinach in the pasta strainer. When pasta is ready pour into the strainer to melt spinach as water pours through. Rinse pasta and spinach quickly under cool water and pour in a large bowl and spritz with olive oil.
4. Add beans, avocado and tomato and stir in with pasta to combine.
5. Pour lime mixture over pasta and thoroughly mix. Spritz with oil if desired and add salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!
