Creamy Avocado Pasta

The cooler weather definitely has me craving some more hearty dishes but with plenty of summer produce in the stores and my love for avocados this dish really hit the spot. The avocado really tames the heat of the jalapeño and cilantro while allowing their flavors to still come through. This would be great as side or paired with grilled chicken.

2 Avocados

Half a bushel of Cilantro

Place into a food processor.

After pulsing for a while, it should start to look like this. Keep pulsing and add some olive oil. To get it this creamy, you’ll probably have to use a spoon and stir in between pulsing.

After completely blended, add some fresh lime juice.

Now, blend in some Goat Cheese. If you’re not a Goat Cheese fan, feta would work although it might not be as creamy.

After boiling the pasta, drain. I stirred the avocado mixture with pasta right in the pot while still warm. This helped everything blend together really smoothly.

Place on a plate and serve! I topped it with a little more Goat Cheese, yummy!
