This dish was born from having a few handy avocados lying around and wanting to make the most of the delicious fruit. While avocado is great on toast sometimes you are looking for something a little more interesting to get the taste buds going.

This is one of the healthiest pasta dishes we have ever tried and is well worth a shot on a night when your willpower is strong and you don't compensate with wine. A few tips with this recipes are as follows. You can add as much or as little garlic as you like as 2 cloves or more can be a fair bit for some people.
