Pasta with Avocado and Tomatoes

Jeanne Benavidez


This recipe was given to me several years by a friend who was a nutritionist and had some very good ideas on eating healthier. I have used baby spinach leaves when I didn't have fresh basil. I have also used different types of Mrs Dash blends and this recipe always comes out delicious and filling.
