Creamy Avocado Pasta

This is the easiest most delicious meal you will make this week. It only takes as long as the pasta takes to cook. You can even whip together a fresh green salad while the pasta cooks and dinner is ready!

6 ounces pasta,

1 large ripe avocado, pitted and peel removed

1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

1 clove garlic, minced

¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro

½ teaspoon kosher salt, or to taste

Freshly ground black pepper, to taste


1. Bring water to a boil in a medium sized pot. Salt the water and add in your pasta, reduce heat to medium, and cook until Al Dente, about 8-10 minutes.

2. While the pasta is cooking, make the sauce by placing the avocado, garlic, lime juice, cilantro, salt and pepper into a food processor or blender. Process until smooth and creamy.

3. When pasta is done cooking, drain and place pasta into a large bowl. Add the sauce to the pasta and toss until pasta is well coated. Season with additional salt and pepper, if desired. Serve immediately.

Note: This pasta dish is best eaten the day it is made.
