Moron Test Kitchen – Pasta with Avocado Sauce

I’m going to be straight with you – I can’t get my photos off the camera so this may be the lamest MTK ever. I put the card into the card reader, my computer sees it for 5 seconds, then it disappears. Lovely.

I’ll do my best to paint you a picture. The other night, my sister said she was trying a new recipe, and to be honest, it sounded kind of yucky. I like pasta and I like guacamole but combined? I don’t think so. Still, she said it was yummy.

While I was at Trader Joe’s the other day, I picked up this:

So I thought I’d give it a try. Boil the pasta as per the instructions, then while it’s cooking, make the sauce.

The sauce is simple. You need 1 ripe avocado, 1/4 cup of fresh cilantro, 1 clove of fresh garlic – minced, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and 1 tablespoon of lime juice. Mix everything together and add pepper and more salt if needed. You’ll need to blend it well. As soon as your pasta is done, drain it, then toss everything together until it’s well coated.

Voila. Your meal is finished.

And it’s a good meal. My first taste was a little bland, probably because I wasn’t sure how much salt to add, but JD grabbed some creole salt and sprinkled it over our plates – NOW it was delish. I would definitely make it again. When I googled  “creamy avocado sauce” several recipe variations popped up, so play around and try your own.

Here’s the original recipe – with photos if you still need that kind of stuff.

Happy eating!
