Whole Wheat Avocado Basil Pasta


This avocado basil pasta recipe can be thrown together with very few ingredients. The simplicity does not compromise the taste!

I’ve made this Avacado Basil Pasta recipe twice already. It’s so yummy! The second time I made it, I modified the original recipe by using whole wheat pasta and a few little seasoning modifications. (The picture is from the first time I made it without the whole wheat if you’re confused.)

It’s a really easy recipe to throw together and can be modified easily according to your taste preference or what you have on hand.

It’s also a great summer dinner for groups.  You can even halve this recipe for just one person! Enjoy

    I loved this, made it last night. I added a can of chic peas and some fresh grape tomatoes sliced in half. I also just added the avocado to each serving individually so we can eat it as left overs. Thanks, WE LOVED IT!!

      Glad you tried it. What would you add in? I’ve tried cherry tomatoes. And, I’ve also made without the bacon and still delicious.
