Green Mommy Green Pasta
So as I promised I perfected a 100% from me recipe today. I did not (to my knowledge) work from or take any known recipe. Though I am sure something like this already exists.. for me this was 100% out of my head. So without further ado I give you "Green Mommy Green Pasta".
As also promised here is the recipe, though please give me credit if you re-post it anywhere.
1 whole ripe avocado
about half a cup of plain yogurt (or Greek yogurt) enough to blend the avocado into a smooth sauce
one tablespoon olive oil
1-3 sprigs of fresh picked cilantro
the juice of about 1/4 large lemon or 1/2 medium lemon
1 small yellow squash sliced very thin
pasta of your choice cooked how you like
Peel and cut up the avocado into a bowl. Add yogurt. Stir. In a saucepan add olive oil and heat slowly. Add thinly sliced yellow squash to the oil in the pan. when lightly sauteed add the avocado mixture, cilantro and lemon juice. heat but don't boil. pour into the pasta, stir and salt and pepper to taste. It makes what is truly a wonderful summer pasta dish, both hot or cold.
