Ingredients:

6 ounces uncooked linguine pasta
1 ripe Hass avocado, peeled and seeded
2 tablespoons fresh-squeezed lime juice*
2 large garlic cloves, minced
3 tablespoon prepared salsa
1 jalapeno chile pepper (stems, ribs, & seeds removed), very finely diced (optional)**
1 bunch fresh cilantro
Coarse salt to taste
Coarsely-ground black pepper to taste

* I vary the amount of lime juice used according to my tastes at the time.

Preparation:

Cook pasta according to package directions to al dente. Learn How To Cook Pasta Properly.

While the pasta is cooking, place the avocado, lime juice, garlic, prepared salsa, chile pepper (if using), cilantro, salt, and pepper into a food processor or blender. Process until mixture is smooth and creamy.

When pasta is done cooking, remove from heat, drain, and place the cooked pasta into a large serving bowl. Add the guacamole sauce and toss until the pasta is well coated. Season with additional salt and pepper, if desired.

Divide the pasta among 2 individual serving bowls or plates. Serve immediately.
