  • 8 ounces dry pasta - your choice
  • ½ lb asparagus, chopped
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • Basil for garnish
  • 1 tsp olive oil

Sauce:

  • 1/2 pack silken tofu

Heat water and boil pasta according to instructions on the package. Reserve 1 cup of pasta water, drain the pasta, and set aside.

In a blender or food processor, add all ingredients for the sauce and blend until smooth.

In a large saucepan or Dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium low. Add the asparagus and cook for 3-4 minutes, until soft. Add the cherry tomatoes and and cook for another 2 minutes, until the tomatoes are slightly soft. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the drained pasta.

Add the avocado sauce and toss gently to combine, adding a bit of the reserved pasta water as needed if the pasta is too thick or clumping together. Taste and add chopped basil and additional salt and/or pepper as desired. Serve immediately.
