Ingredients


2 avocado(s) Avocado (seed and skin removed)
12 small Campari tomatoes (quartered)
230 gm Pasta, Fettuccine, dry
2 clove(s) Garlic (peeled)
2 tbsp Lemon juice
4 tbsp Olive oil
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated (to taste)
1/4 cup Pine nuts, dried
1/2 tsp Salt and pepper (to taste)

Instructions


Preheat oven to 300 ºF.

Wash and quarter the tomatoes. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Drizzle with 1 - 2 tbsp olive oil, just enough to make the tomatoes glisten. Bake for 1 hour in the oven.

Ten minutes before tomatoes are finished, fill a large pot with water and a sprinkle of salt. Bring to a rapid boil. Add the dry fettuccine to the water and cook until al dente.

While the pasta is boiling, add 2 tbsp olive oil, avocado, garlic, salt and lemon juice to a food processor. Pulse until the ingredients are smooth and creamy.

Strain the pasta, and combine with the sauce in a large bowl, until all the pasta has been covered.

Add the roasted tomatoes, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and pine nuts. Add some salt and black pepper to taste.
