As a LA-native, I’m a true lover of avocados, but even I raised an eyebrow when I heard “avocado pasta.” Other interesting avocado treats I’ve tried include avocado shake, which wasn’t terrible but I don’t care for shakes to begin with. Avocado ice cream at Salt & Straw was pretty delicious. But back to avocado pasta, could a combination of two of my favorite things be good? Turns out indeed it can. Very good. Like I ate two bowls of it after a long day at work good.
Ingredients are simple, and if you cook, you most likely have the majority of them in your kitchen already. Key ingredients are basil, avocado, lemon and pasta. I’d go with linguine or spaghetti.
To make the sauce, toss all ingredients (besides pasta) into a blender. Make sure your pasta is boiling on the side because timing is important.
Drain pasta, scoop sauce out of the blender and toss. Add some lemon zest and chopped basil on top for garnish.
