INGREDIENTS

  • 12 ounces rotini pasta or other short cut pasta
  • 1 ripe avocado peeled, stone and chopped
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1 cup frozen corn thawed
  • Fresh basil for serving
Dressing
  • 2 ripe avocados peeled and cored
  • 1 cup baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup Unsweetened Almondmilk
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 garlic clove
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

METHOD

In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions but reduce cooking time by 2 minutes so pasta is al dente; drain well. You can thaw the frozen corn in the pasta cooking water in the last 3-4 minutes of cooking time.

To make the avocado dressing, combine the avocados, spinach, almond milk, olive oil, lemon juice and garlic to a blender or food processor. Season with salt and pepper. With the motor running, add olive oil slowly until dressing is emulsified, smooth and creamy.

In a large bowl, toss the pasta with the dressing, tomatoes, corn and avocados. Garnish with fresh basil and serve immediately.
