Avocado Pasta Recipe

Embed
    2 Servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound Fettuccine, dry
  • 1 Avocado, large, very ripe and pitted
  • 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon Juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1/2 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • Salt, to taste
  • Black Pepper, to taste

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.  
  2. Add the pasta to the pot and cook until al dente, or according to the package instructions.  Do not drain the water after cooking — you need the cooking water for the sauce.
  3. Meanwhile, in a blender, place the avocado halves, olive oil, lemon juice and Parmesan cheese.  
  4. Pulse briefly to combine, and then stream in 1/2 - 3/4 cup of the pasta cooking water until a smooth, creamy sauce forms.  Taste and add salt and pepper, if needed.
  5. Combine the pasta and avocado sauce and serve with extra Parmesan on top.
