Avocado Mac n' PepperJack Cheese

I know I speak for both Rachel and I when I say we are sooooo super excited to share this recipe with you, because OMG it is so wonderful!

Avocado Mac n' Pepperjack cheese has got to be the best thing on this planet.

We found the recipe base here. If you are a true follower of our blog you know we tend to wing it with these recipes, if we don't have an ingredient we omit it or substitute it.
So here is what we did.

Ingredients you need:
10 oz  Rotini pasta or Elbow Macaroni
2 cups shredded Pepperjack cheese
2 Avocados
3 garlic cloves
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp flour
1 cup milk
salt and pepper to taste 

We started by shredding the cheese until we had 2 cups worth. 

In a food processor you add the lemon, garlic,

and avocado.

Pulse until creamy. *Resist the urge to eat it!*

Make pasta according to package directions, drain, and set aside.

In a large sauce pan melt the butter over medium heat.

Stir in flour until well mixed

Add in milk and cheese.

Stir until creamy and set aside.

Put pasta in a large bowl and add the Avocado puree.

Stir it up until it coats all the pasta.

Last add the cheese sauce and stir it all together.

The final product is a very delicious and addictive mac n' cheese.

Rachel after making and tasting it decided she needed to rush home and make it for her family.
We both loved it, it was hard to put down the fork.
It was creamy with just a bit of heat from the cheese. Just amazing, addictive, perfect! 

What is most wonderful about this is after Rachel went home I didn't have to share with anyone except my dad! 
(I mean I offered some to my husband and roommate, but they don't like avocados *score* more for me)
Yummy, yummy in my tummy!

One thing we both agree on is to not let it sit too long. 
It still taste great, but the creaminess goes away.

Here we have a perfect example of why you shouldn't leave glasses of water unattended in my house.
Tsk, tsk Thorin.
