This is a rich, creamy sauce with a lovely pale-green colour. You won't need much of it to dress up a plate of pasta.

Sorry, we just didn't like this at all. The avocados took on almost a metallic taste. . .

This was very quick & easy to make, and I was pleasantly surprised at how tasty it was. I was cooking for two so halved the amount of pasta (Barilla spaghetti #5)used a little less butter, 1 small garlic clove, 1 avocado, 1 vine-ripened tomato and 8 shakes of Tabasco. I used about 250 mls of regular light cream, stirring in a generous amount of freshly grated parmesan so the sauce would thicken. I didn't have any sour cream, so added a little extra parmesan to the finished dish. Thank you for posting.

We love avocados and we loved this recipe... our first attempt at an avacado pasta... thanks! We did use spinach linguine instead.
