I love it when avocados are cheap ;)
This has a great, almost no-cook sauce. In fact, I bet this would make a fantastic pasta salad.
Works well as a quick lunch or dinner.
4 oz. rotelle (wheel-shaped pasta)
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 medium tomato, diced
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1 large avocado, diced
1 tbsp. chopped fresh basil
1. Cook the pasta according to package directions. Drain.
2. While the pasta cooks, heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium heat and then cook the garlic for 30 seconds. Add the tomatoes, salt, and pepper and cook 5 minutes or until warmed through.
3. Toss the tomato mixture with the pasta and then add the avocado and basil. Sprinkle with cheese just before serving.
