How to cook delicious pasta

Boil the pasta until done.

When cooking macaroni (pasta), it is very important to follow the golden rule 1-1-5: for 1 liter of water, take 100 g of pasta and 5 g of salt, and then cook according to the instructions on the package.

While the pasta is preparing, peel half of the avocado and remove the pit, wash the cilantro, shake off excess moisture, and tear off the leaves (I throw away the stems).

Peel the garlic clove.

Combine avocado, garlic, lime juice, olive oil, cilantro leaves in a blender bowl (or in a deep bowl if you use an immersion blender) and beat until smooth. You can optionally dilute the sauce with a few tablespoons of pasta broth, add salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.

Place the finished pasta in a colander, then combine the pasta with the avocado sauce in a deep bowl and mix well.

Fry an egg in a hot frying pan greased with vegetable oil. Place hot pasta with sauce on a plate, place a fried egg on top, sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve.

I’ll say right away that if you are avocado fans, definitely prepare this pasta. The taste of avocado goes well with cilantro and garlic, plus a little lime juice for piquancy, olive oil - and our sauce is ready! And in combination with pasta and eggs, this is a great way to have a satisfying and healthy meal. And in general, if you are passionate about proper nutrition and take care of your health, this recipe is for you.

The recipe is quick and simple to the point of disgrace, and the taste of the dish is amazing and unusual.

Avocado fish sauce


  • avocado – 0.2 kg;
  • soft cheese – 100 g;
  • cognac – 20 ml;
  • lemon juice – 10 ml;
  • salt, pepper mixture - to taste.

Cooking method:

  • Remove the avocado pulp from both halves of the fruit and mash it with a fork.
  • Add soft cottage cheese, mash the products together.
  • Add cognac and lemon juice, add salt and pepper. Beat the products with a mixer or blender, turning them into a homogeneous mixture.

To prepare the sauce, you need to use high-quality cognac. If children eat the seasoning, then you can do without the alcoholic component, but the sauce will then be a little thicker.

To make pasta tasty

I will voice some important points in preparing pasta. And you will understand that even without sauce, pasta can captivate with its mouth-watering aroma and, naturally, taste. What is needed for this:

  • Salt the water before adding pasta. Whether you do this before boiling or after, it doesn’t matter.
  • When the water in the pasta has boiled, you can add a tablespoon of vegetable oil to it. It doesn't matter whether it's sesame, sunflower, flax or olive. Try which one you like best. A nuance: if you like a softer version of pasta, then add the oil before boiling; it is poured in almost simultaneously with the pasta itself.
  • The degree of cooking sometimes depends on whether the pasta remains in the water after cooking, or whether the water is drained completely, without any residue.
  • If it is expected that the pasta will be stewed with sauce in the future, it is better to reduce the usual cooking time by just a couple of minutes.
  • You can add seasonings to the pasta. But first it is better to drain the water. Then pour the seasoning into the hot pasta, stir, close the lid and leave for a few minutes for the spices to open up.

What kind of seasonings could these be? I’ll give you a hint, but I’ll immediately remind you that the kitchen is your laboratory, and you are an experimenter in it! Never stop at one “find”, remember, new discoveries await you! So this is:


Try the familiar dill and parsley, basil. Look how cilantro transformed the dish. How do you like arugula, oregano, celery?

Onion and garlic

Try not only fried onions, but also their greens, as well as garlic feathers. Garlic greens are a bit harsh. But this can be corrected by finely cutting it, but you can also marinate it (most often arrows are used for this).

Pepper. Black or red ground.


You know, even separately, without sauce, it will decorate pasta (only those that were cooked with butter). Don't deny yourself the pleasure of adding cheese. No, no, not ON, but IN the pasta. Cut the soft ones into cubes, grate the hard ones. And stir until the cheese melts.

Delicious pasta sauces

Bechamel, Bolognese... it’s surprising, but when you get acquainted with the world of sauces, it seems that you are meeting someone alive! They have proper names, they have character, they can be friends. The sauces I just mentioned are from this category. And they are mostly friends with pasta. But they (and the traditional cheese sauce) are easy to find or even come up with your own variation of such dressings.

Creamy with Bacon and Champignons

  • Bacon – 200 gr;
  • Champignons – 400 gr;
  • Cream – 200 ml;
  • Butter – 1 tbsp;
  • Pepper and salt.
  1. Chop the mushrooms and onions. Fry until excess liquid evaporates.
  2. Fry thin slabs of bacon in oil.
  3. Put the cream on the fire and add the mushrooms and onions (sometimes I like to chop the onions and mushrooms in a blender first, and then add them to the cream, so the taste and consistency becomes slightly different). Add spices and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring.

The sauce is ready. All that remains is to form the dish: put bacon on the pasta. Pour sauce on top. As you can see, it’s simple, but very tasty!

Shrimp with cheese

I myself love shrimp with cheese. In my opinion, he is brilliant and very gentle. It's impossible not to fall in love with him.

For it you will need:

  • Shrimp – 250-300 gr;
  • Processed cheese – 1 pack (or 90-100 g);
  • Homemade sour cream (or cream) – 200 ml;
  • Garlic – 3-4 cloves;
  • Olive oil – 4-5 tbsp;
  • Salt, dill, pepper.
  1. Lightly fry the garlic clove halves in oil. The main thing is to saturate the oil with garlic aroma. Then we take out the garlic.
  2. Fry the shrimp in this oil for a couple of minutes.
  3. Add cream and heat it up.
  4. Cut the cheese. Place it on the frying pan. Let's turn down the fire. The cheese should completely dissolve in the hot cream.
  5. Add spices and herbs. Mix.

And here, on this path, we have a fork; we can move in two ways:

  1. When the sauce is ready, pour it over the pasta.
  2. Pour the sauce into the prepared pasta and simmer for a couple of minutes over low heat. If the dish turns out too thick, add pasta water.

Try both options! This experiment will not disappoint you in any case!
