The Best Way to Eat Avocados: Avocado Pasta


This is a quickie! Quick and easy recipes that I don’t have much to say about, aside from the fact that they taste awesome and you should give them a go!

Creamy, thick, and rich with lots of garlic flavour and a hint of lemon, this is one of my favourite pasta dishes. The avocado works wonderfully in this recipe to create a sauce so creamy and thick you will think there is cream hiding in there.
