Equipment

  • Mixer

Ingredients

  • 2 avocados (1 avocado per person)
  • 1.5 cups cherry tomatoes
  • 5 garlic cloves If you want it less garlicky, add 1 garlic clove per person
  • 5-6 fresh basil leaves
  • 1 cup frozen spinach You can use fresh too
  • 2 tbsp cream
  • 1 tbsp fines herbes
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 2 servings of pasta of your choice 1 serving per person

Instructions

Cook the pasta

  • In a large pot, bring water to a boil. Add salt.
  • When the water is boiling, cook your pasta following package instructions. I cooked mine (cavatappi) for 9 minutes.
  • While the pasta is cooking, prepare the sauce & the veggies

Creamy avocado sauce

  • Cook the spinach in a pot, when cooked set aside.
  • In a mixer, add the avocado, the basil leaves, the herbs, the cream and the spinach.
  • Mix well until you have a creamy texture.

In the same pot you cooked the spinach (because we enjoy not washing a million dishes)

  • Add the olive oil, when hot, add the minced garlic and cherry tomatoes (cut in halves)
  • Cook for 5 minutes and set aside.

Assemble

  • Drain the pasta, reserve a tiny bit of that pasta water in case the sauce is too thick.
  • Mix the avocado sauce with the pasta, then add the cherry tomatoes & garlic. Mix everything well.
  • Enjoy!
