DIRECTIONS

  • Cook pasta according to package directions until al dente.
  • Remove the cooked pasta,drain while running under cold water.
  • Place pasta in a bowl and toss the pasta with 1/4 cup of olive oil.
  • Chill the pasta in the refrigerator while preparing the other ingredients.
  • Peel and cut one avocado in half lengthwise and remove the pit.
  • Mince the jalapeno pepper and garlic cloves.
  • Chop the parsley and cilantro.
  • To make the dressing for the salad, combine the halved avocado, half of the chopped parsley, half of the cilantro, the lime juice, jalapeno, garlic, and salt in a food processor or blender.
  • Blend until all ingredients are well mixed and add the 1 cup of olive oil in a steady stream until the mixture is creamy (resembling mayonnaise in consistency).
  • If the dressing is too thick, add a little water to the blender to loosen it up.
  • Set the dressing aside while you prepare the other ingredients.
  • Peel 4 of the avocados, halve them, and remove the pits, and dice (I prefer larger chunks, so cut them to the size that you prefer).
  • Dice the tomatoes and red onions.
  • In a large bowl, combine the chilled pasta, diced avocados, tomatoes, onion, and remaining parsley and cilantro. Mix until well combined.
  • Fold in the avocado dressing and mix well until all of the pasta mixture is well coated.
  • Serve immediately and enjoy!
