Fettuccine With Avocado Tomato Sauce

I hesitate to call it a sauce, it's a lovely medley of flavours. You can add more garlic and adjust the rest of the seasonings to taste...but for me..the lime juice was the best addition to the sauce! If you like it spicy, add one more chili pepper to the mix! I paired it with a spinach salad to get more greens into my family and everyone cleaned their plates. Enjoy! **VEGAN OPTION: Choose pasta that's made without eggs.

  • Place a large pot of water on to boil.
  • Heat the 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet, over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic and chili pepper; cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes, salt & pepper and cook, stirring often, until the sauce has thickened slightly, about 10 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat, and stir in the cilantro. Keep warm. Meanwhile, in a large pot of slightly salted water, cook the noodles until just tender, about 8-10 minutes. Drain well and transfer to a warmed serving bowl.
  • Add the tomato sauce, avocados, 3 tablespoons olive oil (optional) and lime juice. Toss to mix well, and serve immediately.

    Amazing!!! We all thoroughly enjoyed this pasta. I did however have to make a couple of changes...I didn't have a hot pepper so I used pepper flakes and did not use the finishing olive oil....it really doesn't need it. I added a couple of tablespoons of homemade ricotta and a skewer of bbq'd prawns to the top. YUMMY! Thank you eco-eater for sharing this great recipe that will definately be made again. I made this for the New Kids on the Block tag game.
