Try This— Creamy Avocado Pasta (Vegan)

Is there any food as perfect as an avocado? I think not. I was in the mood for some pasta yesterday, and somehow without even realizing it, I had run out of pasta sauce. I mean, who does that? I don’t even know how it happened. Fortunately, I did have some beautifully ripe avocados on hand, so I was able to make the most delicious pasta dish I’ve had in a long while. Seriously, avocados are so creamy and filling that I really can’t imagine why I haven’t made this before. I’ve seen this recipe floating around the internet and I might have even pinned it on Pinterest to try later, but I just never got around to it. Yo! Every bite of this had me kicking myself for not making it sooner. You must try this!
