The Best Way to Eat Avocados: Avocado Pasta

Posted: Updated:

Quick and easy avocado pasta recipe is great for date night, girlfriend night, or any weeknight at all.

There is at least one night a week in which I need a fast, hearty dinner. We do a lot of activities and events after work, and sometimes I have an hour from the time I walk in the door to when we have to leave again. On those nights, I make this easy and filling avocado pasta.

If your evening plans include drinks with friends, this pasta provides enough carbs and healthy fat to get you through the night---even your best friend's post-breakup drinking binge. (A few more nights like that, and I will re-name this from Avocado Pasta to 'Break Up Pasta'!)

The minute you walk in the door, put a large pot of water on to boil for the pasta, and have your blender ready. You are just minutes away from your new favorite easy weeknight meal. Plus, who can resist creamy avocados mixed with cheese? Not me, that's for sure.

Pasta for two is definitely a specialty of Christina's. We think you'll love her Ricotta Gnocchi Recipe too. And hey, if you've got a little extra time, Stephie's Red Lobster Biscuit Recipe would be great with either recipe.
