Pasta and Avocado Cilantro Lime Sauce with Chicken

Pasta and Avocado Cilantro Lime Sauce with Chicken

Pasta is a go to for me.

I am always trying new sauces to add great flavor to pasta, this was a winner with my family.

I could eat pasta at every meal.

Really I could, here is an example.

A spaghetti Breakfast and Savory Spaghetti and Eggs then Pesto Pasta Salad for Lunch oh there are so many pasta dinners like Spaghetti and Meatballs (yes there is a spaghetti and meatball cake too) spaghetti with sausage, a quick and delicious spaghetti dinner, even Spaghetti with Blue Cheese and toasted Walnuts and for dessert, Chocolate Spaghetti.

Now for how to make this easy and fresh pasta.

I Began with a California Acocado. I learned all about California Avocados at Camp Blog Away and received this Avocado cutter.

There is only one California Native in this photo πŸ™‚

 

While you are bringing the water to a boil for your pasta, cut up skinless boneless chicken breasts and cook them over a medium heat.

  1. We have pasta usually once a week but my husband just loves all different types and recipes. This looks like a dish he would truly enjoy.

    I love that avocado cutter and I’ve never seen one before. Wonder if we can get them in Canada?

    1. I think the cutter was a promo item, if I come across another one it’s yours πŸ™‚

  2. Avocado Cilantro Lime sauce – that sounds so good!! What a creative use of the avocado! I bet the avocado lends to a nice and creamy sauce! Great job Diane!

    1. Thanks Sue. I love avocados too, hmmm…maybe we should do an avocado week of yumminess. Avocado scones??? maybe, how about avocado cookies. Savory sweet treats!

  4. Hi Diane,

    I just found your website, and I’ve already bookmarked about eight recipes! They look delicious, and I can’t wait to try them – my husband is a huge fan of avocado too, so I’m sure he’ll be excited too! Thanks for sharing your great ideas.

    1. I have a family of 4 and give my husband more food than my kids, especially when they were younger. Size your portions accordingly to who you will be serving.

  5. Do you think this would freeze well? It looks delicious but since I am the only avocado lover in this family, I would need to freeze it in smaller quantities.
