Lovely Avocado Spaghetti

avocado spaghetti

I just think this simple avocado pasta is so lovely! I was inspired by this recipe on Damn delicious. The avocados make it so creamy and the parmesan give it a little nuttiness, and the roasted grape tomatoes, yum!

My husband suggested adding nuts, so next time I will add a little toasted pine nuts to the top. I think it would add an extra lovely component!

8 ounces grape or other small tomato sliced in half
1 tablespoon olive oil
8 ounces spaghetti
Handful of basil leaves
2-3 garlic cloves
2 avocados
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
Juice from 1 lemon
Salt & fresh ground pepper
Toast pine nuts (optional)

  1. Toss the tomatoes with the olive oil and salt and bake for 25-30 minutes in a 375 degree oven.
  2. Boil spaghetti according to direction on the package.
  3. In a food processor, add the basil, garlic, avocados, parmesan cheese, and lemon juice and blend until smooth. Add salt and fresh ground pepper to taste and blend in.
  4. Toss the spaghetti with the avocado sauce and top with roasted tomatoes and maybe even some toasted pine nuts. Ooo la la.
