So, I was about to make the same old dinner last night, but thanks to my awesome neighbors, this thing of beauty was created!
My neighbor has a surplus of cilantro growing in her garden, so I gladly took some and made a batch of my Chimichurri sauce (recipe on the blog).
I usually serve this over grilled flank steak, but since I already had steak last night, I decided that I would make Chimichurri Shrimp! Simply grill or lightly saute shrimp and toss with chimichurri, Delicious.
THEN, my other neighb0r had a couple extra, perfectly ripe avocados that she wasn't using, so I gladly took them as well to make this great avocado cream sauce!
Avocado Cream Sauce:
*one very ripe avocado
*one teaspoon of garlic
*1-2 tablespoons of lemon juice
*teaspoon of chopped parsley and cilantro
Blend in food processor.
Then I just cooked up some fresh spinach linguini (also from my neighbor, but available for purchase at Trader Joe's.) Tossed it with my Avocado Cream Sauce, and topped it with my Chimichurri Shrimp and a handful of cherry tomatoes! For a low carb version, I would use spiraled squash, but since I didn't have that, it was a great excuse to eat some pasta! I don't do it often, but this dish was so packed with healthy ingredients, that I went for it! ;)
SO FRESH! SO GOOD! We practically LICKED THE BOWL!!!
And, Thanks ladies for all of the amazing ingredients!!!! I'll make this again and bring some to you now that I know it's good!! <3 <3
