Recipe Name: Avocado-cream Sauce For Pasta Submitted by: Administrator

Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 2

8 Ounce(s) Pasta with shape, e.g.
penne or spirals
1 Lemon
1 Avocado
1 80g pkg Boursin with herbs
1 1/2 Koffieroom
50 Gram(s) Achterham
1/2 Bakje tuinkers
Salt and freshly ground
pepper to taste
Translations: "achterham" is a nice sliced lunchmeat-type ham. For a
vegetarian dinner, omit this; or, maybe, replace with mushrooms.
"tuinkers". Hmmm...I really don't know the English name for this, or
recall seeing anything similar. It's in the cress family, but
smaller-leaved than watercress. You buy a little box (the bakje) that
is filled with a sponge-like block. The tuinkers are sprouting from
that, maybe one inch high. You take you kitchen shears or a knife and
cut off what you want. Anybody know what this is? They're good
sprinkled in a salad. I suppose you could use some kind of sprouts,
maybe mixed, with radish sprouts included for the peppery taste. Peel
the avocado and remove the seed. Cut into chunks and place in food
processor (or blender). Wash the lemon. Into the processor, finely
grate half the peel, avoiding the white part. Add the juice from half
the lemon to the processor (other half not used). Add the Boursin and
koffieroom to the processor. Whiz till smooth. Pour into a small
saucepan. Warm over low heat from about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, cut the
ham into strips. Cut the tunikers from their bed. Stir into sauce. Add
S&P to taste. Serve over a shaped pasta. Penne was good, but maybe try
something a bit smaller. Recipe By : TIP Magazine Posted to EAT-L
