Creamy Avocado Pasta

In a previous post we discussed the health benefits of avocados (click here for more info). This week our local grocery stores are highlighting avocados as a top sale item, along with other delicious produce choices! 

I couldn't help upload another family favorite! This recipe is bursting with flavor AND all ingredients are on sale through June 23. Missing the meat? Add grilled chicken to complete this entree! 

Bring on summer with this light, healthy dish that your family is sure to love.
