Avocado Pasta

It has been a while since my last post and that isn’t because I haven’t been cooking, I have just been in a recipe rut…making stuff I already know how to make…you know the story. I came across this recipe on a facebook post and it sounded good so I thought I would try it. It was easy and delicious. I will definitely make it again though I think next time I will eliminate the corn and add feta. The corn was good but it didn’t really add anything to the dish. Nonetheless, the avocado sauce was delicious.

Avocado Pasta

Ingredients:
12 ounces spaghetti
2 ripe avocados, halved, seeded and peeled
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves
2 cloves garlic
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1/3 cup olive oil
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup canned corn kernels, drained and rinsed

Directions:
In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions; drain well.
To make the avocado sauce, combine avocados, basil, garlic and lemon juice in the bowl of a food processor; season with salt and pepper, to taste. With the motor running, add olive oil in a slow stream until emulsified; set aside.
In a large bowl, combine pasta, avocado sauce, cherry tomatoes and corn.
Serve immediately.
