Avocado Pasta Recipe

There is at least one night a week in which I need a fast, hearty dinner.  We do a lot of activities and events after work, and sometimes I have an hour from the time I walk in the door to when we have to leave again.  On those nights, I make this easy and filling avocado pasta.  

If your evening plans include drinks with friends, this pasta provides enough carbs and healthy fat to get you through the night—even your best friend’s post-breakup drinking binge.  (A few more nights like that, and I will re-name this from Avocado Pasta to ‘Break Up Pasta’!)

The minute you walk in the door, put a large pot of water on to boil for the pasta, and have your blender ready.  You are just minutes away from your new favorite easy weeknight meal. Plus, who can resist creamy avocados mixed with cheese? Not me, that’s for sure. 
Pasta for two is definitely a specialty of Christina’s. We think you’ll love her Ricotta Gnocchi Recipe too. And hey, if you’ve got a little extra time, Stephie’s Red Lobster Biscuit Recipe would be great with either recipe.

  • 0.5 Fettuccine dry
  • 1 Avocado large, very ripe and pitted
  • 1 Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Lemon Juice freshly squeezed
  • 0.5 Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • Salt to taste
  • Black Pepper to taste


  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.  
  • Add the pasta to the pot and cook until al dente, or according to the package instructions.  Do not drain the water after cooking — you need the cooking water for the sauce.
  • Meanwhile, in a blender, place the avocado halves, olive oil, lemon juice and Parmesan cheese.  
  • Pulse briefly to combine, and then stream in 1/2 – 3/4 cup of the pasta cooking water until a smooth, creamy sauce forms.  Taste and add salt and pepper, if needed.
  • Combine the pasta and avocado sauce and serve with extra Parmesan on top.
