Notes

I had this very pretty ripe avocado and I was hungry for pasta. So I thought, why not combine them. So with a little Guacamole basics I made a crossover Italian Mexican and here is the great resault! :)

Note, while I was making it I was pretty hungry so I had to taste one or two spoons of the avocado mixture before hand :)

I used the extra lime juice that I had left to make a refreshing drink to go with this dish. Just poured it in a glass, added 2 or 3 mint leaves and filled it up with ice cold sparkling water! Just delicious!
