Avocado-Lime Pasta

When I saw this recipe on Krumkaker I fell in love. So simple, fresh, and different. A Scandinavian pasta dish inspired by a Swedish blog named Pickipicki. This dish could be made year-round but it is a perfect summer meal because it requires so little cooking. I only modified it slightly by adding more garlic and drizzling the finished dish with olive oil. We ate it with fresh Italian orecchiette. Creamy, quick, and GREAT!

  • 3/4 pound dry or fresh pasta (I used fresh orecchiette)
  • 2 large, ripe avocados, diced
  • Juice of one lime
  • 3 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • Pinch of red chili flakes
  • coarse salt, freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • handful of basil, chiffonade
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan, grated, or more to taste
  • olive oil, drizzled over the top of the dish

  1. Boil the pasta in salted water and cook according to package directions.
  2. In the interim, peel, stone and dice the avocados. Toss diced avocado in a bowl with lime juice, salt, pepper and some chili flakes.
  3. Drain pasta, and toss with ingredients, including basil and grated cheese. Drizzle with olive oil. Serve warm or cold.
