This avocado pasta sauce is the creamiest, most delicious, lick-the-plate kind of sauce. Just 5 ingredients and 5 minutes to prepare - pulse together avocado, garlic, scallions, lime juice & olive oil until smooth & enjoy.
Course: Main Course
For the avocado sauce
2avocados halved, pitted and scooped
For the pasta
~300grice fettuccine pastaor any other pasta of your choice
Salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper to taste
Boil 8 cups of water in a deep pan with a little salt and a light drizzle of Olive oil. Add pasta when the water comes to a boil. Cook till al dente. Prepare pasta according to your packet instructions. The rice fettuccine, I used, took about 11 minutes to become al dente.
While the pasta is cooking, combine together all the ingredients for the sauce in a food processor and pulse until smooth.
When the pasta is cooked, add about ½ cup of pasta water to the avocado mixture and blend until smooth. The salty starchy pasta water not only thins the sauce to the right consistency but also helps the sauce to stick to the pasta better.
Drain the pasta. In the serving platter add pasta, sauce and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat.
Garnish with parsley before serving. Add a simple veggie salad on the side to make a complete meal.
I like the taste of lime juice best with Avocado but use lemons if you prefer lemons over lime with avocado.
If using as a dipping sauce, keep the consistency thick by reducing or not adding pasta water at all.
Leftover sauce will keep well in refrigerator for a day or you can freeze the sauce for longer.
