The easiest, most unbelievably creamy avocado pasta that everyone will love. And it’ll be on your dinner table in just 20 min!
Avocados. I love them. I could eat them by itself with a little bit of sea salt. I could eat them mashed up in guacamole with an entire bag of chips.
And now, I can eat them in the most glorious, most creamy pasta I’ve ever had. And the best part about this is that there’s no cream or butter in this. All you need is simple, fresh ingredients. That’s it.
So how is this so creamy? Well, all you need are a couple of ripe avocados, fresh basil leaves, garlic, lemon juice and olive oil. From there, you can just throw it all into a food processor and give it a whirl! Done and done.
Toss it with your favorite pasta noodles – spaghetti, rotini, macaroni, etc. – along with some fresh veggies. You can really use any veggies you’d like but I loved the sweet corn kernels and crisp cherry tomatoes.
Plus, it’ll be on your dinner table in 20 min from start to finish. It doesn’t get much easier than that!

Why It’s A Smart Choice
Using avocados instead of cream is a great way to get rid of saturated fats in favor of mono-unsaturated fats, which can have a positive effect on blood cholesterol. Additionally, this is a great recipe to serve to guests or take to a potluck since it fits into so many different diet needs: vegan, milk-free, or egg-free!
