How To Make pasta with creamy avocado "pesto" sauce

  • 1
    Sauce: Remove avocado from skin and place in a small bowl. Mash with a fork until fairly smooth - it doesn't have to be perfect. Stir in lime juice, mayonnaise, onion, almonds, salt and pepper. Blend well.
  • 2
    Cook pasta according to package directions.
  • 3
    Drain and return to pot. Drizzle with melted butter. Mix to coat the pasta then serve up each individual portion.
  • 4
    Spoon on a generous dollop of avocado sauce and gently mix. (The heat from the pasta will "melt" the sauce much like any other pesto), sprinkle with parmesan and enjoy.
