  2. If you don’t already have vegan cheese prepped, follow this recipe from Minimalist Baker to create some delicious vegan parmesan cheese: https://minimalistbaker.com/5-ingredient-vegan-parmesan-cheese/
  3. Chop spinach up! This will feel like way too much spinach but once it’s been heated, it will shrink.
  4. Dice up avocado
  5. Once pasta is cooked, drain pasta then add butter. Stir to combine.
  6. After butter is completely melted in. Add salt, pepper, red pepper flakes.
  7. Stir in spinach till it begins to melt
  8. Top with diced avocado and pepitas
