Guacamole Spaghetti Recipe

Guacamole spaghetti

If you have some guacamole sitting in your fridge and need ideas for a quick lunch or dinner, try guacamole spaghetti. Just mix guacamole and spaghetti and your meal is ready to rock and roll.

Until very recently I was not a big fan of avocado but guacamole prepared using the recipe below is nice. The recipe may not be authentic. For example it uses oil whereas I think no oil is used in the authentic recipe. Also cilantro is missing. Even though this may not be authentic guacamole, it is still delicious. If you prefer, you can even use authentic guacamole with spaghetti.

2 avocados, pitted
½ red onion, minced
1-2 chilies, minced
3 tablespoons olive oil (optional)
1 tablespoon of fresh lime or lemon juice
½ teaspoon salt
½ tomato, chopped (optional)
½ kg spaghetti or any other pasta

1.      Prepare pasta as directed on package
2.      In a food processor add all the ingredients except the tomatoes. Blend until creamy. Add tomatoes and mix well.
3.      Mix the sauce with hot pasta.

  1. It looks fabulous! Definitely my kind of meal. I am an avocado addict and I already see it as a hot summer meal option (have you served the pasta cold or warm? I already see it with cold soba!).
    "If you have some guacamole sitting in your fridge" haha! I had a good laugh. I often prepare guacamole (every ten days at average...) but if half of it arrives to the table, it's already great ;-) I keep on seasoning, tasting and tasting... and finally there is nothing left.

    1. I had the pasta at room temp - the guacamole was cold and the pasta was warm.
