Creamy Avocado Pasta

AvocadoPasta

I am just trying to post recipes ,as when I find time (meaning, not spending those free hours before facebook) and that is why more new recipes in the past few weeks Smile. I had this recipe bookmarked from two peas and their pod. My kids, especially my little one enjoyed this avocado pasta. The bowl was cleaned completely and that is a surprise for me, as it never happens with both of my kids.

And I believe this recipe will suit only for people who like avocados or for one  who is ready to start developing the taste.

Notes

The original recipe called for 6 oz. of spaghetti and I was not sure how much it would be. Over all, for the above mentioned quantity I used about 2 1/2 cups of cooked Spaghetti.

And next time I prefer adding some soaked almonds while grinding the avocado and some toasted breadcrumbs for the topping for the nice crunch. Also, a tab of sour cream or crème fraiche on the top of this avocado spaghetti should taste even more good.
