Angel Hair Pasta with Avocado and Tomatoes

Tonight’s dinner was inspired by the ever increasing pile of tomatoes on my kitchen counter. I have been trying to figure out what to do with them for a few days now. I found this recipe on the Betty Crocker app on the iPod today. It was a great use for tomatoes, was very quick to make and was very tasty!


8 ounces uncooked angel hair pasta
2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped or grated.
3/4 cup chopped fresh basil leaves (or 1 Tbsp Dried Basil)
1 large avocado, peeled and cut into small cubes
4 medium tomatoes, cut into small cubes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook the pasta.  While the pasta is cooking, heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat.  Cook the garlic for about a minute and remove from heat.
Add the basil, tomatoes, avocado and pasta to the garlic saucepan.  Toss to combine.  Season with salt and pepper.
Super easy!  Super Quick!  Super Delish!
