Ingredients

  • 2 cups your favorite uncooked pasta (I used brown rice pasta)
  • 1-3 cloves garlic, to taste
  • 2 handfuls baby spinach
  • 1/2 lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons avocado or olive oil
  • 2 large rip avocados or 3 medium rip avocados peeled and pitted
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt or to taste
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • black pepper, to taste
  • water

Instructions

  • Cook pasta according to directions on packaging. 
  • While the pasta cooks, combine remaining ingredients EXCEPT water and tomatoes into a blender or food processor.
  • Blend until smooth, scraping down the sides a few times to make sure everything gets pureed and incorporated. 
  • Taste and add more salt and season with pepper if desired. If you prefer a thinner sauce, add water a tablespoon or two at a time and blend until desired consistency is reached. 
  • After pasta is done cooking, drain and put in a large bowl.
  • Pour guacamole sauce over the cooked pasta and add the sliced tomatoes to the bowl. Stir to coat everything with the sauce and enjoy immediately. 
  • The lime juice in the sauce will help the sauce from browning too quickly, but this dish is best enjoyed fresh. 

Notes

Suggested adaptations
  • Add some spice! If you like a little heat in your house, consider adding 1/2-1 jalapeños (seeded and to taste) to the mix!
  • Add some protein! Need a little something else added to the mix? Try adding grilled shrimp, chicken, some veggie-loaded meatballs or chickpeas to the dish!
  • Adapt the garlic. We are a garlic loving family, but I get that it is a strong flavor for some! Reduce or bump it up to meet your personal taste preference!
