creamy avocado pasta by joanie

This is my new to-go dish: so tasty, easy, quick, and fresh. Perfect for summer.


  • 4 oz pasta
  • 1 avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
1 large/2 small servings


Heat a large pot of salted water. Cook pasta al dente according to the package.

Meanwhile, combine the avocado, lime juice, garlic, cilantro, and salt in a food processor. Process until smooth.

Drain pasta and toss with avocado mixture. Serve immediately with freshly cracked pepper.

15 minutes
