For the avocado pesto sauce:

  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 2 cups fresh basil

Add the pasta to a saucepan with plenty of salted, boiling water and cook according to package instructions.

Add one spoonful of cooked penne at a time to the cherry tomatoes (along with any pasta water that the spoon catches). Then add the avocado pesto and stir well.
