Avocado Pasta Is Sorta Like Coating Noodles in Guacamole

After red wine pasta and chocolate spaghetti, I thought I had seen it all in terms of unusual pasta ingredients, and then someone showed me avocado pasta. Blending avocado into a sauce and tossing it in hot pasta sounded just wrong. Nevertheless, one night I wanted to make a quick pesto for pasta, and while I didn't have cheese or nuts, I did have one ripe avocado, ready for experimentation. 


I pureed the avocado with some herbs, garlic, lemon zest, and salt. It tasted like a traditional pesto but with a creamy, alfredo-like richness. Oh, OK! I can work with this. I stirred the guacamole-like sauce into the steamy pasta. Surprisingly, I didn't hate it. In fact, it tasted almost like an herby mac and cheese minus the dairy. Entering hot weather months, I can't wait to turn to this no-cook pasta sauce for quick, tossed-together dinners, especially when having a few friends over.
