Creamy Avocado Pasta


My cooking style can eloquently be summed up as: cheese before chocolate, put it in a sandwich and I'll eat it, and avocados and tomatoes are virtually inseparable. I believe that the pairing ability of avocados and tomatoes can be placed in the same category as apples and cheese, beer and pretzels, and pizza and wine. Delicious on their own, but even better paired. Did you know that avocados, or better known to the Aztecs as "butter of the forest", contain up to 30%  healthy fats. I've been on a total avocado kick for the last 6 months, and my hair has been feeling extremely shiny. It could also be the new shampoo I bought. I don't know.


Avocados are quite often sold in the grocery store under-ripe, therefore you should allow 2 -3 days to ripen, although this process can be accelerated by storing near some bananas or wrapping in news paper. An avocado has fully ripened when it feels soft, but not squishy. Your finger shouldn't leave an indent in the skin when pressed. Over ripe avocados start to turn brown and loose their flavor. They pretty much taste like nothing. Fortunate for me, Fred Meyers sells their avocados just ripe, so when I had a craving for avocado pasta sauce using ripe avocados, I was able to make it immediately. When I was growing up, we never had avocados in the house. To be honest, I'm not sure why. Were they common 20 years ago? I'm not even sure I remember the first avocado I ate, or when. It must have been in guacamole form, possibly in Mexico, or maybe a Mexican-themed party. Although, I can remember the first tequila I drank. Definitely at a Mexican-themed party.




I now eat 1/2 avocado a day at breakfast. I sprinkle with a little kosher salt, and scoop it out with a spoon. People sometimes look at me and think this is weird. That's ok, because I know in my heart that it is awesome. I had never thought of making a sauce with avocado, until a friend of mine raved about it. I am so pleased with how it turned out, I just had to share. It's wonderful how the creamy consistency of the avocado replaces the creaminess from a more traditional Alfredo sauce. I love how the avocado gives the pasta a gorgeous green hue. The pine seeds add a bit of crunch and earthiness. The roasted tomatoes add a sweet and tart zing to break up the creaminess from the sauce. Top it off with some salty sharp Parmesan cheese, and you've got a perfect light summer pasta.

CREAMY AVOCADO PASTA RECIPE (print)
makes 4 servings
recipe adapted from Oh She Glows
notes: add some grilled prawns or chicken for protein. 

prep time: 10 minutes
cook time:1 hour 10 minutes

INGREDIENTS
10 - 12 small Campari tomatoes, quartered
3 - 4 tbsp olive oil
4 servings of fettuccine noodles
2 ripe avocados, seed and skin removed
2 garlic cloves, peeled
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 cup pine nuts
grated fresh Parmesan cheese
salt and cracked black pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 300 ºF.

Wash and quarter the tomatoes. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Drizzle with 1 - 2 tbsp olive oil, just enough to make the tomatoes glisten. Bake for 1 hour in the oven.

Ten minutes before tomatoes are finished, fill a large pot with water and a sprinkle of salt. Bring to a rapid boil. Add the dry fettuccine to the water and cook until al dente.

While the pasta is boiling, add 2 tbsp olive oil, avocado, garlic, salt and lemon juice to a food processor. Pulse until the ingredients are smooth and creamy.

Strain the pasta, and combine with the sauce in a large bowl, until all the pasta has been covered.

Add the roasted tomatoes, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and pine nuts. Add some salt and black pepper to taste.

  3. Your cooking style...well let's just say I couldn't help chuckling to myself and picturing the avocados in my own kitchen. What a unique way to use them. And yes! They go so well with tomatoes. Do you ever eat your morning avocado on toast with the same sprinkling of salt? Sometimes that's how I like it.

  4. This looks so good, found you via Pinterest. Can't wait to make this. Question, this probably would not re-heat well, so it would need to be served immediately, right? We sometimes have different dinner times here.

    1. Thanks. You could probably eat it within a couple of hours from making. The only issue is that the avocado turns brown quickly. The lemon juice somewhat helps though. You could always make the avocado sauce ahead of time, put it in the fridge, and then heat up some noodles later in the evening.
      It doesn't really heat well the next day. Good Luck!

    2. I had some leftovers the next day for lunch at work and it was perfectly fine. I think it tasted better but I always like leftovers the next day. :)

    just made this and LOVED it. I used organic wheat fettucini instead to make it an even healthier AND filling meal! I was a little dubious when I made the avocado "sauce". I felt like it was a delicious and smooth guacamole rather than pasta sauce, but it transformed so well with the tomatoes, parmesan and pine nuts. Thanks for providing a new easy staple to my diet!

  50. I have an avocado tree. For the last 12 years that I have lived in my house, it mhad 3 total avocados. Someone told me it must be a female and you have to live near a male tree to pollinate it, and I just assumed there was not a male nearby.
    Then I mentioned this my friend Tom who has a green thumb and he pronounced this BS!! He said, "YOu just need to prune your darn tree!" My husband read online how to properly prune an avocado tree. We now have 100 avocados and many that I can't reach!! So I am seeking out avocado recipes, like the vegan chocolate pudding I made last week and the avocado margaritas EPCOT makes. I'll have to add this to my list. And now I know why they get brown spots in the fruit bowl with the bananas. Today they get their own bowl too. THANKS!! All this great advice I wish I had 12 yrs ago... :)

    do you think adding some cream cheese would make it extra creamy or would you think its not necessary? or ruin the flavour somehow. i just love dairy and cream(i drink it and put it on my cereal) and extra creamy pasta is the best. i think that is why i love avocados so much because they are so creamy as well. when i eat my avs i just add sea salt and a squirt of lemon. i score them into little squares so the lemon can leak through all the pieces. the lemon also brings out the flavour with the salt.
    thank you

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I don't think the cream cheese is necessary, but you could give it a go and let me know what you think. It would definitely add some extra creaminess and may alter the flavor, but that might not be a bad thing. Lemon and salt, and scoring and seeping. This all sounds so good.

  57. I am making this fantastic recipe tonight for dinner for the second time. This use of avocados is truly inspired. Just some advice for those who have not tried it yet. Follow the recipe the way the recipe reads the first time you try it. Especially roasting the tomatoes. The flavor of the roasted tomatoes is unbeatable. Don't worry about warming up the sauce as you will pour this over very hot pasta and it will warm up just fine. The first time I served it with a panko crusted chicken and foccia bread. Tonight I will service with sausage. Enjoy!!

  61. Totally amazing and delicious!!!!! I don't have a food processor, but I have a Magic Bullet. it worked great, but next time when I make it (tomorrow) i need to let the avocado's sit out for about an hour. being cold, they didnt mush up to well in the bullet. I had to take it off, spoon it a lot push it back down and then it did okay. Little manual labor, but TOTALLY worth it. We are having guests so I am going to try add chicken with it.

  84. Parmesan sometimes gives me a headache, so I think I will use Feta with this. Feta is another natural with tomatoes and avocado! I know this is going to be a hit! I just wish I lived in a climate where I could grow my own. I think the tomatoes will get roasted in an old, well seasoned iron skillet. It's been my go to pan for roasting vegetables. To prevent browning, a dash of lemon pepper, which contains citric acid will help.

    ReplyDelete
  85. This was so fabulous! Raw garlic gives me wicked heartburn, so I roasted a clove along with the tomatoes and used that when I blended the cream sauce. It was VERY thick so I needed to use coconut milk to thin it - maybe my avocados were big? I don't eat dairy so I added nutritional yeast to my bowl instead, everyone else had parmesan. This was so quick, easy, and tasty. It's definitely going into my weekly rotation!
