#6 / 52 Food Adventures: Creamy Avocado Pasta

This wasn't originally what I was going to post today but the computer gods are working against me.
However, I am glad I decided to throw this together at the last minute.

This creamy avocado pasta doesn't have any cream or butter but uses avocado instead for the smooth consistency.

I made such a small batch I couldn't get it smooth and didn't bother trying to take a pretty picture but
the flavor was all there.
I did add parmesan cheese because I just looove cheese.

I'm going to play with variations of this for the Peanut.
I love avocado but I think this would work for people who don't love it like I do.

The combination of the avocado with lime and cilantro
make for a really refreshing spin on ordinary pasta.

Thank you for the beanie Auntie Christina!

  2. This sounds really good! I've totally been slacking on blogging about my food adventures, but we're still trying new things. Thanks to your bison suggestion, we had ale braised bison stew last night. I found the bison to be really flavorful when slow cooked. I bought stew chunks, though I'm sure cutting up a whole roast would have tasted even better. I couldn't bring myself to pay $35 for a little 2 pound roast, though. It was really good! And, I also tried beets in a smoothie. Yeah, major fail. Sprig drank it like it was going out of style, but I couldn't get past the first sip. ;)
