15 MINS AVOCADO PASTA

                                                Pasta is known to be staple food of Italians. But these days pasta is everybody's element. It is found in pantries 😋around the world.   We eat pasta almost every week. Snehith and my hubby Mohan prefer thin spaghetti / pasta. So, we prefer having Angel hair pasta as it is really thin and represents our Indian noodles.  I love 😍 pasta with some marinara sauce/ spicy tomato and basil sauce. At times I make pasta in Indian way which I am going to post soon which is real quick. 
                             This weekend I wanted to make something simple and quick with pasta. I was browsing through the pasta recipes and finally ended up with this avocado pasta recipe from here. I had everything ready in hand. As Avocado is very creamy and rich I was wondering 😑how the pasta tastes along with it . But, to my surprise it was creamy and the raw tomatoes, green onions add a wonderful texture to it. On top of it we can make it in a jiffy. Boil pasta on one hand and in the meantime chop tomatoes, green onions and mash avocado. So, write down the ingredients and start cooking.
