Quick food: Avocado Pasta by Majnouna Quick food: Avocado Pasta by Majnouna
:pointl: Check out the book!

This has been a life saver when I'm really busy and prepare my food at the very last minute. The dressing is done by the time the pasta is cooked, and any amount of improvisation can be done with the herbs included. Do make sure you only prepare what you're going to eat in one sitting: heating avocado is always tricky (I let the pasta cool down to eating temperature before mixing them) and this doesn't bear reheating! Also, I've often made it with grated British cheddar because that's what I had on hand, so any cheese of that sort (gruyère etc) is fine.

As an Italian, I would have never thought of mixing avocado with pasta. I am looking forward to trying this now. :)

If heat is a problem, wouldn't it be better to eat this as a cold pasta salad? Or is it meant to be a warm meal?

I have it warm, the avocado is not directly heated so it's fine. But I'm sure it would be delicious as a cold pasta salad!

I'll try both. :) Or rather, I will most likely end up doing too much and then eat the rest cold. I tend to do that. --"

Tried it, aside from the lemon juice (which is too much for my taste), it goes WOOOONDERFULLY. <3 <3

And best of all, I still have the ingredients to make another one, so I can do a revenge attempt soon!
Thank you so much!

I tried this tonight. I put in a little fresh dill instead of basil (since I couldn't find any fresh basil... weird) and it was delicious! Definitely a new favorite.

It should be if you don't mind cold pasta; personally I can't stand that, but pasta salads are popular and this could work as one.

Grow your own avocado tree then. You can buy one that's already producing. That's what I'm planning on doing.

thanks ^^; it's not like everywhere in the world can grow avocado and avocado in my country are expensive as internet bill because it's all import.
i read comment here and many comment said it's delicious so i do want to make something close with this taste and want many people in my place try good food even they have not much money.

and i'm really sorry, i didn't mean to be rude.
i just heard somebody said avocado are oily and taste like tasteless mango.

i'm so sorry, everyone here maybe don't want to hear this. but it's coming out well. with mango and lemon it's give fresh taste and nice smell.

You're welcome and you'd be surprised where you can grow avocados. ;) I've seen people grow avocados from desert climates to tropical. The only place I know for sure they can't grow is somewhere like Alaska. There are cold tolerant varieties but they can't tolerate THAT much cold. :XD:
I understand. That's great that you're doing that.

No, no! You weren't rude! At least, to me you weren't.
Well, they definitely don't taste like that when they're ripe. The unripe ones definitely have a "green" and oily flavor. The best thing is to just give a ripe one a try. If I had listened to everyone who said durian (type of huge fruit) tasted like rotten egg I wouldn't have eaten it, but I'm glad I didn't because to me it tasted absolutely wonderful! It just depends on the person.

No need to apologize! It's great to hear that anyone who doesn't like avocados can substitute it with mango and lemon! I may give that a try myself!
