Mealthy Tip

Alternately, put the avocado sauce ingredients into a deep bowl or pot and blend with an immersion blender until smooth instead of using a blender or food processor. Make it grain-free by serving the delicious avocado sauce with spiralized zucchini. This way, it is also a great side dish or lunch. Make it gluten-free by using quinoa instead of pasta!

This recipe is very good. I am originally from Mexico so I love avocado and cilantro but I also lived 1 year in Italy so I know good pasta. The combination of the avocado, garlic, cilantro, basil and lemon makes a very interesting sauce to go with this fusilli. Definitely doing this recipe again, next time will probably add so plum tomatoes into the sauce to see how that comes out.

Made this for lunch today. The recipe is good as is, but I agree with the reviewer that maybe it needed some things added to liven it up a bit. Parmesan did the trick. It gave a nice bite to the recipe.

A little bland at first so I added fresh parmesan cheese, diced tomatoes, and chicken which really improved it and made is delicious! Lots of different flavors in the pasta and very colorful!! With the right additions this can be quite a delicious dish!

Made this avocado pasta with the tri-color veggie noodles! I also used two garlic cloves instead of one so that it would be extra garlicky. So yummy!
