Sometimes I am terrible at judging how much produce to buy, I usually err on the side of too much. This has happened to me several times with avocados. Avocados have such a short window of perfect ripeness so I am sometimes forced to make something on the fly with my extras. This is how this recipe happened today at lunch. Now I may purposely buy too many avocados so that I can treat myself to this decadent creamy dish more often. Also depending on what type of pasta you use this dish is vegan friendly, and if your not vegan and/or don’t have almond milk in the house you can easily substitute cow’s milk.
Easy Creamy Avocado Pasta Sauce
1 avocado peeled, and chopped, pit removed
3 T almond or cow’s milk
2 cloves garlic chopped
1/2 t salt
1/4 t pepper
1/3 c grape tomatoes halved
2 c cooked pasta of your choice
more salt and pepper to taste
Place the avocado, milk, garlic, and salt in pepper in a bowl and blend into a puree with a hand held blender, or toss those ingredients into a regular blender until smooth. Toss with warm drained pasta and tomatoes, season with desired amount of salt and pepper and serve.
