I was at Inspired Taste where I saw this pasta and I do want to share, they are giving away a Kitchen Aid so go on over and see if you can win. While you are there, check out the recipes and sundry other items, you will find. I am glad, I found the blog and plan to go back often.
My husband doesn’t love avocado although he eats it, when served, but I love it, so this was more for me than for him. That is so unusual since I love cooking for him and usually make what he wants, before what I want. I eat a more varied diet and like almost everything he wants. He can’t say the same. He eats a more bland diet than I like so I spice up my food on my plate, rather than in the cooking. This is not necessarily the same but it works well enough for me.
I am married to one of those men who has done a lot for me, over the years, and cooking seems so small compared to all he has given of himself. There are those moments though, when I want something and this is one of them. I love this.
Avocado Pasta (Adapted from Inspired Taste)
8 ounces pasta (brown rice spaghetti)
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon salt (I added more on my plate.)
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 medium tomato
1 green onion, finely chopped
- Cook pasta according to package directions. Once cooked, reserve 1/2 cup of hot pasta water then drain pasta.
- In the meantime, de-seed and dice the tomato then set aside. Next, add avocado to a large bowl and use a fork to mash into a paste (some chunks are fine). Add lemon juice, salt and a sprinkle of pepper then mix well. Taste for seasoning and add salt and/or pepper to taste.
- Add cooked and drained pasta, 1/4 cup of the reserved pasta water and tomatoes to the avocado; toss. The avocado should turn into a thin sauce that coats the pasta, if you need to thin the sauce out slightly, add a little more pasta water then serve with green onions sprinkled on top.
