RECIPE BACKSTORY
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 :)
