Creamy Avocado Pasta

avocado pasta recipe

If I would allow it, my family would eat pasta at every single meal.  In fact, I’m sure if you were to ask my children what they wanted to eat, their response would probably be noodles.

I like to make meals my family enjoys, but you all know just how boring the same thing can be when you eat it over and over again.  So I’m constantly looking for inspiration to turn our go-to meals into something that is just a tad bit different.  And that is exactly what I did when I saw this wonderful pasta recipe!

I used whole wheat pasta, but if you aren’t a fan, I’m sure regular white pasta would taste just as good.  I love the health benefits of whole wheat pasta and with the lemon, garlic and avocado sauce, it tastes soooo good!

I hope you and your family enjoy it just as much as my family did!
