Cilantro Avacodo Linguine

We love avocado!!
My local mexican market had them on sale the other day 5 for .99 which is an awesome deal so I priced matched them at Walmart and stocked up.
I tend to keep them in the fridge, they seem to last longer and if I know I will be using one soon I place it on the counter to ripen. 
 
So since we had all these avocado’s I wanted to use them in some recipes.  Since its Meatless Monday I thought this would be the perfect the recipe for us to try!
 
 
 


Cilantro Avocado Linguine

2 large avocado, peeled
1 Tbsp lime juice, I used fresh
1 glove fresh garlic
1/4 fresh cilantro
1/2 tsp salt
dash of black pepper
1 package linguine noodles, I used whole Wheat

Start boiling your noodles,  I like mine to al dente.  In a food processor add in your avocado, lime juice, garlic, cilantro and salt pepper.  Mix until completely combined.  Strain noodles from water.  Add in the avocado mixture the noodles and stir until they are completely covered.
Serve immediately!

My Notes:
I thought this recipe was sort of dry, I’m wondering if I added a little cream or milk if it would help, but other then that it was great!
