Adapted via Two Peas & Their Pod
Serves: 8 to 10
♦ 6 ounces pasta (I used whole wheat spaghetti)
♦ 1 large ripe Avocado, pitted and peel removed
♦ 1 tbsp fresh lime juice
♦ 2 cloves garlic, minced
♦ 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
♦ 1/2 tsp kosher salt, or to taste
♦ Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
♦ splash of water
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.
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, adding water to reach the desired consistency.
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)
