INGREDIENTS
1 handful of cherry tomatoes
2 ripe avocados
1/2 lime, juiced
2 cloves of garlic
4 servings of pasta noodles such as spaghetti
1/8 cup olive oil
1/4 cup pine nuts, chopped
Cilantro, chopped

INSTRUCTIONS
1 Cook pasta according to directions.

2 In a medium skillet, add just enough olive oil to coat the pan over a medium-high heat. When the oil has warmed, it will appear water-like and begin to shimmer.

3 Add the cherry tomatoes, let them cook for a few minutes so that they sear. Flip the tomatoes so they sear on the opposite side. When both sides are seared, remove them from the heat.

4 Add the garlic to the food processor and mince it.

5 Pit the avocados. (See my video on pitting avocados)

6 Add in the remaining olive oil and the lime juice and mix well. Then add in the lime zest and avocado meat, puree until slightly
chunky.

7 Toss the cooked pasta with the avocado sauce and the tomatoes.

8 Chop the pine nuts and the cilantro separately to be used as garnish.

9 Garnish and enjoy!
