Homemade pasta is not nearly as intimidating as it may seem, but for a comforting dinner made quickly, top store-bought pasta with this vibrant avocado sauce.
Ingredients
For the pasta
  • 2 organic eggs
  • 200 g semolina flour + more for dusting
  • a pinch of salt
For the avocado sauce
  • 2 ripe avocados, peeled and pitted
  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1 lemon’s freshly squeezed juice + lemon zest
  • small handful of basil
  • salt, pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
Instructions
  1. To make the sauce place all the ingredients in the food processor. Start blending it until becomes very smooth. Set aside.
  2. To make the pasta dough mix together the flour with the eggs and salt in a bowl. Using your hands knead the dough until it gets elastic, kind of soft and doesn’t stick to your fingers anymore. Set aside for 15 minutes. In smaller portions press the dough through the pasta machine making macaronis or any kind of shape. Sprinkle them with flour.
  3. In the meantime bring salted water to a boil in a medium sized pan. Add in the macaronis (in portions). When the noodles begin to float (3-5 minutes) on the top, remove with a slotted spoon, drain and rinse well and place pasta into a bowl. Follow this procedure until all the macaronis have been cooked. Pour sauce over the pasta and toss until fully combined. Garnish with lemon zest, pepper and serve immediately. (This dish does not reheat well due to the avocado in the sauce.)
