Ingredients

  • 8 ounces linguine, cooked per package directions until al dente
  • 1 avocado, pitted and flesh scooped out
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil,
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro leaves
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes or cayenne, use paprika for less heat
  • Salt to taste

Instructions

  • Heat the oil and add the onions with a pinch of salt.
  • Saute the onions, stirring frequently, until they caramelize and turn golden-brown. About halfway through, add the garlic and let it also cook with the onions.
  • Place the onion and garlic mixture in the bowl of a food processor or blender along with the avocado, cilantro, lime juice and red pepper flakes. Process until you have a fairly smooth sauce. It will have a pesto-like consistency.
  • Remove the guacamole sauce to a bowl, add the cooked pasta, and toss well to mix.
  • Serve immediately.
