I've been cooking a lot lately and need to catch up on blogging recipes. Honestly, my favorite thing I've made in a long time was Sesame Peanut Noodles with Beets! So good. I had been craving peanut sauce for a while and finally purchased farmers' market beets and was gifted honey, paving the way for this deliciously one point sauce.
So I guess since this blog requires more than just puppy pictures and updates on my life, let's talk about Pasta with Avocado Sauce. This was a pinterest find, as many of my recipes are lately. I really didn't alter it from what Damn Delicious came up with. This was fast and easy, and unlike most my recipes, I didn't have to chop vegetables forever. It made a bunch, but I have a feeling the avocado will make it brown. Let me know if you think of any ways to improve or add on!
Avocado with Pasta Sauce
Adapted from Damn Delicious
1 lb penne pasta
2 ripe avocados, seeded, peeled, and sliced thick
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves
4 cloves garlic (that's a Vince portion, feel free to scale back)
juice of 1 freshly squeeze lemon
lots of salt and pepper
1/3 cup olive oil
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup canned corn, drained and rinsed
Boil water for pasta and cook it according to the box. In a food processor or something like it, blend avocados, basil, garlic, and S&P. Slowly add in the olive oil. In a large bowl, combine pasta, corn, tomatoes, and sauce. Enjoy.
