Dinner, Vegetarian, Summer, Tomatoes, Avocado, Meatless, Squash, Summer produce
Author: Lauren Kelly


  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 2 yellow squashed chopped
  • 4 medium tomatoes chopped
  • 1 ripe avocado peeled and pitted
  • 1 large clove garlic
  • ¼ cup shaved Parmesan cheese
  • 1 container of gnocchi or pasta of choice


  • In a large skillet, heat minced garlic and oil for 1-2 minutes. Add squash and tomatoes and cook on medium heat for 3-4 minutes. I like my vegetables a little crisp. Set aside.
  • Place avocado, clove garlic, and cheese in blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
  • Cook gnocchi or pasta according to instructions. Drain, rinse and place in medium bowl. Add Avocado sauce and mix well. Top with vegetables and serve immediately.
