    I found The raw garlic to be kind Of overwhelming so i added a spoonful of greek yogurt which mellowed it out.

    Made this for dinner tonight. The only thing I didn’t have was fresh basil, parsley or cilantro so I used a bit of dried basil. It was fabulous. I will make this again and again. I have just recently started using avocados and was looking for simple but delicious recipes.

    how much fiber?

    Janine

    Great recipe!! My bf and I loved it. I added some cherry tomatoes and corn to the dish and it gave a little extra flavor but the recipe as is tasted delicious already.

    Cafe Caro

    Thanks for the delicious and easy recipe. We loved it so much we had it two nights in a row. It also tastes nice with some cherry tomatoes to add some tang.

    Where are the proteins in this pasta?

      Layla

      Just added the nutritional info under the recipe. There are 10.7 g per serving.

    I must have used a really large avicadi because I had to add another cup of pasta. This tasted great, though. For an even “cheesier” taste, add 1-2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast.

      Julie

      Whoops, avocado.

    Rebecca

    This is just soo delicious OMG

    Julia

    How well do you think this would do in the freezer? Would love to have some ready made sauce!

      Mikaela

      I froze my extras and it was just as delicious! It only was in the freezer for about a week because it was so good I had to eat it again, so I’m not sure how long it would last after a week 🙂

        Layla

        Yum, it tastes even better the next day!

    Patie

    Has anyone tried nutritional yeast in place of the cheese for a vegan version?

    Anna

    Is this pasta eaten hot or cold?

    Ruthie

    As a dietician I am constantly cautioning people that although avocado is a healthy fat, it is still fat and high in calories. If you are trying to lose weight you should have no more than a half an avocado per day or less often.

      Layla

      Thanks for your input, Ruthie! We try not to have too much but it’s just so good!

      Felise

      I made this and I found it serves at least 4 so ends up being about a 1/4 avo per person. Hope that helps!

      Leslie

      Still better than the alternative though right? Don’t knock it just because avocado has fat in it!

      Ashley

      Looks like the recipe uses one avocado and serves three people.

    Carolina

    I tried it and it’s incredible. Perfect combo!

    adrianna gansz

      Krystal

      Yeah my family thought so too – my daughter added beans and dipped chips in it! Not my favorite
