You've heard of avocado toast, but I guarantee you've never seen avocado like this before... my Creamy Avocado Pasta with Roasted Tomatoes is the most delicious, creamy, dairy-free pasta that will absolutely blow your mind.

Ingredients

For the Roasted Tomatoes

  • 2 Cups Cherry Tomatoes (or the small vine ripened tomatoes)
  • 4 Cloves Garlic mashed
  • 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste

For the Avocado Pasta

  • 1 Package Spaghetti Pasta (12 - 14 ounces)
  • 3 Large Avocados ripe
  • 1 Large Shallot diced
  • 3/4 Cup Cilantro
  • 3 Cloves Garlic
  • 1 Lemon juiced
  • 2 Tablespoons Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 Cup Dairy-Free Cream Cheese can also substitute regular cream cheese
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper Flakes plus more for garnishing, if desired.

Instructions

  • Start by roasting the tomatoes. Preheat your oven to 400F.
  • In an 8×8 baking dish, add the tomatoes, mashed garlic, olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Toss until the tomatoes are well-coated. Then, bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until blistered.
  • While the tomatoes are cooking, prepare the pasta. Cook pasta according to package instructions, until al dente.
  • Drain the pasta, and reserve about 3/4 cup of the pasta water for later. Set aside.
  • Next, prepare the sauce. In a blender or food processor, add the avocados, shallot, cilantro, garlic, lemon juice, maple syrup, cream cheese, salt, and red pepper. Blend/process until very smooth and there are no chunks. Taste and add more salt/pepper as needed.
  • Pour the sauce over the pasta, and add pasta water as needed to thin out the sauce, if necessary. Coat pasta well.
  • Add the roasted tomatoes and serve immediately. Enjoy!
