Pasta is my go to when I need a quick dinner. I keep the ingredients for easy pasta recipes on hand, and when I go shopping I always make sure to have the ingredients for at least one of my last minute healthy dinner recipes with pasta on hand just incase we need it.

Toss tomatoes in the oven to roast, cook the pasta till al dente, put the avocado pasta sauce ingredients in the blender or food processor, and blend them, then mix the sauce with the pasta. That is it! SUPER easy!

Tips for making this recipe
Use ripe avocados. When you are buying avocados you can remove the steam and if the inside is green it is ripe to use.
Use any type of pasta. I like using fettuccine but you can use any pasta, rigatoni, spaghetti, macaroni etc. All types of pasta will work with this creamy avocado pasta.
Change up the tomatoes. If you do not have vine ripe tomatoes on hand you can use other types of tomatoes including cherry tomatoes, roma etc.
Add other veggies. You can add other veggies including sweet corn.
Add Protein. If you want to add some protein, grilled shrimp or cooked chicken are great additions.
Skip cooking the tomatoes. I like to roast the tomatoes, but if you are wanting an even quicker cook time you can skip roasting the tomatoes.
How to pick a ripe avocado
When you’re choosing now avocados to make a sauce just remove the stem of the avocado if it’s brown the avocado ripened too much. You want to have a slight give to the skin when you press on them. If you need to speed up the ripping you can place them in a brown paper bag with a banana overnight.
How do I keep avocado sauce from turning brown?
So the one downside to this avocado pasta sauce recipe is that when you store the leftovers the sauce will get to a darker green color when you store it in the fridge. We do not normally have any leftovers when I make this for dinner, but know ahead of time if you do then because of oxygen the avocado sauce will get a darker green when it is stored in the fridge, the lemon juice helps with this but doesn’t stop it but it is perfectly fine to eat.
How to Store Leftover
I do not suggest storing leftovers, but if you have them and need to they need to be stored in an airtight container in the fridge. But you must know that the sauce will brown due to being stored and being exposed to oxygen.
