Creamy Avocado Pasta

Creamy Avocado Pasta
Avocado is rich in proteins, fibres,vitamins and carotenoids. It boosts levels of good cholesterol, good for heart and also provide Anito-inflammatory benefits. Pasta is my kid's favourite.. that too he loves cheese pasta. I always try to avoid giving cheese to my hubby.Most of the time, I prepare broccoli pasta or spinach pasta. This time, I tried a very easy, quick and healthy Avocado pasta. Please check below for step by step instructions and pictures for preparing Creamy Avocado Pasta.

Tips:
  • My pasta had strong garlic flavour. Adjust garlic to your taste.
  • If you don't like raw garlic flavour, then chop garlic into small pieces and fry it along with onions. 
  • Adding roasted peanuts will add crunchiness to the recipe.
