Pasta Avocado Dinner

I love taking items in my pantry and making something yummy with them. I usually just mix things together. Today I am sharing a recipe for pasta with creamy avocado. It only has 4 ingredients in it and is sure to please the family.

All you need are:

  • Rotini of your choice. I used garden.
  • Black beans rinsed
  • Can or frozen kernel corn
  • 2 avocados

Rinse off your avocados and take the seed out. Scoop out the insides into a food processor. Add seasonings. I used basil, salt, and pepper. Run food processor until avocado is not chunky any more.

Cook beans in pan after rinsing them off. Cook pasta in 2 or 3 quart pan until cooked to your liking. After everything is cooked and seasoned you mix the black beans, corn, and pasta together. Add some lime juice to your avocado and stir it. I did not mix the avocado in with the rest.

I mixed the avocado in with each bowl I served. I also added shredded cheddar cheese. It was a fast and yummy dinner.

What would you add if this was your recipe? I am always looking for ways to make better food.


  1. a healthier version... zucchini instead of pasta!

  2. I love the idea of using avocado as a sauce. Talk about a better way of getting more vitamins. Looks great! #CircleofFriends

  3. Looks delicious! I think I might have added some chicken or turkey! Thanks so much for linking up at the #HomeMattersParty - we hope to see you again tomorrow! (The door opens at midnight EST - feel free to bring a friend!)
