    Update: I just made this for dinner and it ROCKED! I skipped the shrimp and actually forgot to add the parmesan and it was still AMAZING! I cooked the tomatoes in a skillet for quickness and added the garlic to them at the end to cook it instead of putting it in raw with the avocado blend. It was SOOOOOOO good! :love:

    That sounds great!

    I have a shellfish allergy or something, but it sounds like I can omit the shrimp without it hurting anything.

    Thanks for sharing!

    It would be amazing with bl/sl chicken breast! YUM!

    I just ate this and I'm dead of deliciousness.



    The original recipe as written:

    prep time: 10 minutes
    cook time:1 hour 10 minutes

    10 - 12 small Campari tomatoes, quartered
    3 - 4 tbsp olive oil
    4 servings of fettuccine noodles
    2 ripe avocados, seed and skin removed
    2 garlic cloves, peeled
    1/2 tsp salt
    2 tbsp lemon juice
    1/4 cup pine nuts
    grated fresh Parmesan cheese
    salt and cracked black pepper to taste

    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.

    I reduced the olive oil a touch, and added some sautéed shrimp.

    Toast those pine nuts a bit too.

    A beautiful serving was about 540 calories and just the BOMB.

    Bump for OH HELL YES.
