Hidden Vegetable Spaghetti

If your child is going through a picky eating stage, or are just picky all together find out a way to make a healthier spaghetti.  This recipe hides one whole, vitamin rich vegetable. The Avocado sneaks into this dish, undetectable.

What You Will Need:

1 pound ground beef or turkey.

24 oz. Spaghetti sauce (any brand)

1 avocado

1 tbsp. Lawry’s Garlic Salt

1 tsp. Cracked Black Pepper

Spaghetti Noodles (we like Ritoni pasta)

Food processor



Brown the meat in a large sauce pan. Once cooked, drain the fat out by using a strainer. Place meat back in the sauce pan. On medium to high heat, add the spaghetti sauce. Next add a tablespoon of garlic salt and the black pepper. Mix well and allow sauce to simmer. Once simmering turn down the heat to low and cover.

Add one avocado to the food processor and add one tablespoon of water. Blend until a thick guacamole type paste is formed. Add the avocado paste to sauce mix and turn the heat back up to medium high. Once the sauce is simmering, turn the heat down to low and cover once more.

At this time cook the pasta. Once the pasta is drained you can either serve the sauce on top of the pasta or mix the pasta with the sauce.
