Ingredients

12 ounces whole-wheat linguine
1 1/2 pounds large shrimp

1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Avocado Linguine Recipe

Note: This recipe is divided into three steps. Linguine, shrimp,and sauce. I found that the pasta got dry sitting in the bowl while I was cooking the shrimp and making the sauce. Do your best to time the draining of the pasta close to the time of the finishing up of the sauce and shrimp. 

Make the linguine. This part is easy peasy. Simply bring a large pot of water to boil. Cook the linguine until tender. Scoop out 1/4 cup of the cooking liquid and set aside. Drain pasta and transfer to a large bowl.

Make the shrimp. In large baggie or bowl, toss shrimp with olive oil, lemon juice, cilantro, red pepper flakes, and salt. Grill for a few minutes on each side.

Make the sauce. In a food processor, combine avocado, olive oil, lemon juice, spinach, cilantro, garlic, and salt. Pulse until chunky. Add 1/4 cup liquid from pasta that you previously set aside. Pour the sauce over your pasta and toss to coat. Avocado Linguine Recipe

  1. As if I wasn’t hungry enough…gotta go make some pasta now. We’ll have to make do with angel hair and Mizithra with melted margarine. Yeah, brown butter is way tastier, but, you know, it’s butter.
