Avocado Pasta

Avocado Pasta

Spring has sprung in DC! This recipe is a SUPER simple and delightful spring dish that came out somewhat by accident, somewhat by design. It has a bright, yet creamy flavor that is perfect for a warm March day. Enjoy!

Avocado Lemon Pasta with Tuna
2 pitted avocados
Juice and zest of one lemon
5 cloves garlic (or less, depending how much of a garlic lover you are)
2 Tb olive oil
1 Tb balsamic vinegar
Kosher salt, to taste
Black pepper, to taste
1/2 lb linguine
1 can albacore tuna

  1. Set a large pot of water to boil. When it comes to a boil, cook the pasta according to package directions.
  2. Put the avocados, juice, zest and garlic into a food processor. Pulse a few times to catch, then add in the olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper. Blend until smooth.
  3. When pasta is finished, drain well and dump into serving bowl. Pour in sauce and tuna. Mix and serve!

It’s delightful to add a little Parmesan cheese with a nice glass of pinot grigio. Yummer McYummersons.
