Hey friends, how was your Christmas? Did you eat lots of food? Receive the best gifts? Have snowball fights? Watch any lame Christmas movies? Travel a lot? Hate your family? Or if you don’t celebrate Christmas, how was your weekend? Right now I am just trying to recover from days of heavy meals and continuous snacking. I just want to eat something light and fresh. So now I’m all about salads and quick pastas. If you’re anything like me, this recipe is just what you need.
I’m a sucker for anything with avocado, but this pasta may be my absolute favourite avocado recipe ever. The combination of avocado, lime, lemon and fresh basil is so refreshing and rich. And not to mention it’s nutritious, filling but still light. Serve it with your favourite (gluten-free) pasta or zucchini noodles.
