Instructions

For the Avocado Sauce

  1. Place all ingredients into a food processor. Process until smooth and creamy, about 3 or 4 minutes. Set aside.

For the Pasta

  1. Bring 4 quarts of water to a rapid boil. If desired add 1 tbsp. olive oil so the noodles don’t stick. Gradually add spaghetti to boiling water. Stir gently and return to rapid boil. Cook uncovered for 7 to 9 minutes. Drain. Set aside.
  2. In the meantime, add olive oil to large frying pan or Wok. Add garlic, asparagus, tomatoes and sweet corn and lightly sauté until the vegetables are slightly tender but still a little crisp, about 10 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Add avocado sauce to pasta. Stir thoroughly.
  4. Add pasta to plate. Top with primavera vegetables and serve piping hot.

Notes

If you would like to cut down on calories and fat, you can make this recipe oil-free. Simply substitute vegetable broth for olive oil when making the sauce and cooking the vegetables. TIP: You may need to use a little more vegetable broth when making the sauce than you would have used making it with olive oil.
