Creamy #Avocado Pasta by @UpsideDownPear

I am in love with this creamy and flavorful dinner! It’s crazy easy to put together, and you basically make it in one pot. Mmmm…creamy avocado and fresh herb goodness. This is one of the dishes that is perfect for those summer nights, even if those nights are getting shorter and it sometimes looks like fall outside. Sigh, where did those warm late nights go?

Anyways, this is definitely one for you if you like avocados. I added some fresh basil and dill to give some punch. Basil is best fresh, but if you need to you could use dried basil. It’s just not quite the same. I picked up some fresh basil after running out. Basil makes just about everything taste better. I will say that Bren who isn’t too crazy for avocados really enjoyed this! He was the one to suggest that we should make it again and share it with you guys.

Can you guys believe how fast this summer is flying by!? It’s crazy to think that we’re already in August. I’m seeing back to school signs everywhere (and I’m thankful every day that I don’t have to go back). I’m so looking forward to my family trip to San Diego! It’s not until the end of August/early September, but it’s always so much fun. I love just spending time relaxing on the beach. It’s the perfect vacation. Since we rent a house, we try to cook simple meals while we’re there. I’m thinking we’ll definitely have to slip this in one of the nights.
