Creamy Avocado Pasta with Lemon Turkey Tenderloin

Perfect for dinner or a lazy sunday lunch!

It's pasta topped with a creamy avocado sauce and some lemon turkey tenderloin. This avocado sauce is oh so creamy and oh so rich that you won't believe there's no cream in it! 

The whole meal took a total of 40 mins to make all this including prep so it's super easy. 

Lemon turkey tenderloin: 
4 small turkey tenderloin slices 
Juice of 1 organic lemon
 Pinch of Italian seasoning 
Pinch of garlic powder 
1/2 tbsp of EVOO per tenderloin 

1. Preheat oven to 350F 
2. Roll each tenderloin in lemon juice and EVOO 
3. Sprinkle both sides with Italian seasoning and garlic powder 
4. Place on a baking sheet covered in aluminum foil and bake for about 30 mins (may need to add more or less depending on thickness of the turkey) 

The recipe for the "Creamy Avocado Pasta Sauce" (direct link to recipe) is posted on Only thing I did differently was only use 1 garlic clove cuz I'm a baby when it comes to garlic :P 

I cooked gluten free pasta based on package directions and then added the sauce to the pot after I drained the pasta of course and stirred it up real well and then plated it with the turkey on top! And voila! Oh so good and oh so healthy. Filled with healthy fats, good carbs and tons of lean protein.
