To be honest, pasta was the first meal I ever learned to cook. I’ve been making it forever and have had many proud {and many not so proud} pasta moments. Being an avocado aficionado, I’m always looking for new ways to incorporate it into my meals, so once I realized I could have my cake and eat it too {avocado + pasta!} I had to share. It’s a perfect meal to serve up on hot summer nights.
