    Delicious! I made this last night and will definitely make it again. I loved that the ratio of veggies to pasta was a lot heavier on the veggies than most pasta dishes are. I substituted regular pasta for whole-grain to add a bit more nutrition to it and it was thoroughly enjoyed by both of us!

    I made this for lunch today. For a hot pasta dish, it was really refreshing on a muggy afternoon. I ended up making this with wheat rotini, spinach, bell peppers, green beans, tomatoes, scallions and mint, but the avocado was definitely the star. All the butter helped to make it really tasty (we love butter). @Jacelyn - I love the idea of adding lemon!

    Used olive oil instead of butter and only 1 tbsp. It is rich enough with avocado that the recipe does not need the extra calories and bad fats.

    I added a tiny bit of chicken boullion, and a pinch of poultry seasoning to the recipe and used steamed white rice instead..........was so yummy! Bet it would be good with seasoned grilled chicken breast pieces on top of it too!

    I thought it was delicious, also. I made it according to the recipe the first time, using I talian parsley. Next time I'll add 2 chopped scallions, some lemon zest and a squeeze of lemon and 1/4 cup parsley with 1/4 cup fresh basil. There were no left-overs!

    Positively delicious. The combination of the light butter, pasta, and crunchy vegatables is a perfect light summer meal. Also, very easy and quick to make. Great the busy person.

    This is a delicious, light summer dish. The crunchy texture of the vegetables and the light buttery sauce is a great combination. I definitely recommend it.
