    Thank you!! Made this tonight and both hubby and the kid who don’t like
    avocados, loved it! I added sautéed shrimp, onions and mushrooms and fresh
    Roma tomatoes. Perfect!

    My friend and I (we are both 16) made this for dinner tonight for my 46
    year old mom and my 15 year old brother and it was a hit! We doubled the
    recipe and cooked one large chicken breast cut into small pieces in a
    skillet on the stove and added it to the pasta to add some protein and it
    was really good! Thanks for the recipe Meg
