Guacamole Pasta

Prep: 20 minutes Cook: 8 minutes

Serves:4-6

We love guacamole at my house. It is so easy to make and my boys love to help. Usually we eat it with baked tortilla chips, but when you add pasta it becomes a completely different dish. The addition of homegrown tomatoes really make this dish special. However, please note, avocados are high in fat, so think of this as an appetizer or salad, not an entire dish.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound whole wheat pasta
  • 4-5 avocados, skinned and pitted
  • 4 ounce can chopped mild green chilies
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 tsp hot sauce
  • 4 cups tomatoes, chopped
  • salt to taste

Directions

In a large pot, cook pasta in boiling water until al dente. In a large bowl, mash avocados well. Add chilies, lemon juice, salt and hot sauce and stir well. Add tomatoes and cooked pasta and mix until well combined. Serve at room temperature.
