I’ve seen quite a few recipes for creamy avocado pasta over the past few months and I was pretty intrigued with the concept, so I decided to go ahead and give them a try.

To be honest, though, I just went ahead and made this from memory, and from having mostly just watched the pictures, so I didn’t really know what to do, or what to expect. All I knew is I needed an avocado and some sort of pasta. In fact, I didn’t even know if I was supposed to eat this warm or cold.

And for some reason, I decided not to validate that information and to just play it by ear. Yep! Kinda like a man trying to put together a piece of furniture, you know. Get the job done first, and check the instructions after. πŸ˜‰

So anyway, I chose to eat mine warm, and added a few asparagus and endives, just to keep everything nice and green!

The sauce was really delicious. Just as creamy and tasty and dreamy as imagined it to be.

However, I let my noodle selection fall on Soba, and I’m not sure that the flavor combination was optimal. It was, erm… strange, to say the least. Not bad, but strange.

I definitely have to redo this, but with a different kind of noodle, this time.

And maybe add a few pieces of chicken, as well as a few shavings of parmesan cheese.

YUM!

All in all, this is a keeper. This has so much potential!Β 

It’s fast, it’s easy, it’s versatile and it’s super healthy!

My kind of meal!
