How to make Avocado Pasta:

Get some salted water on the stove and bring it to a boil then cook your pasta according to the directions on the back of the box or package. Next, de-seed and dice a tomato. We really love how the fresh tomato really freshens up the avocado pasta, but if you’re not a fan, just leave it out.

Now, find a large bowl and add a cup of avocado. Make sure the avocado is ripe for this, otherwise there won’t be much flavor. An avocado is ripe when it gives slightly when squeezed. You can see our tips for buying, cutting and storing avocados here.

Now, use a microplane to grate in some fresh garlic. If you don’t have a microplane, just mince the garlic finely. (read: we totally suggest you get one, by the way). You don;t need much garlic, here — just enough to give off a touch of spice.

Add some lemon juice….lime juice would work, too!

… then season with salt and pepper.

Use a fork to mash everything together. You can also use a food processor, but we hate cleaning it, so a fork is our go-to.

Once the pasta is cooked, reserve about 1/2 a cup of the water then drain the pasta.
Add a 1/4 cup of the reserved pasta water to the mashed avocado, this will thin out the sauce a bit.

Next, add the pasta and the tomatoes from earlier.

Toss, then check to see if the avocado has turned into a sauce that clings to the pasta. Add a little more water to thin things out a bit if you need to.
