Pasta with Avocado Sauce
This is a very quick recipe, ready in 10 minutes flat and great for all avocado lovers like me. Here's how I make it:
2 handfuls of pasta of your choice (1 handful per person) - Cook per package instructions.
As the pasta is cooking, cut open 1 avocado & scoop out the flesh. Put in a blender or food processor. Add salt and pepper to taste and 2 tbsp. lemon juice. Add some chopped sun dried tomatoes and 2 tbsp. prepared pesto, both these are optional, but I like to add them. Pulse or blend till desired smoothness is achieved. Check and adjust seasonings.
Once the pasta is cooked, drain it, reserving few tbsp. of the cooking water. Immediately add the avocado sauce to the hot pasta. If required, add the reserved water.
Serve warm with some garlic bread on the side.
