I tested this recipe out when my son was being a picky eater and needed some new ideas. Not only is it easy but it’s so delicious that it has become a family staple, husband and toddler approved!
2 ripe avocados, halved, seeded and peeled (unripe and the sauce will be lumpy)
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves
2 cloves garlic (I use Red Russian Garlic)
2 tablespoons of lemon juice
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1/3 cup olive oil
Cook your choice of pasta according to package instructions; drain well.
To make the avocado sauce, combine avocados, basil, garlic olive oil and lemon juice in the bowl of a food processor; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Mix till nice and smooth.
In a large bowl, combine pasta, avocado sauce, garnish with cherry tomatoes and/or corn.
Note: You can keep leftovers in the fridge, just keep in mind the avocado will brown
