I haven't tried this yet, thought it would be a good summer meal. It's from Betty Crocker's Diabetic Cookbook.

This is very good! We added some sliced scallions to the garlic.

This was a pleasant, if ho hum, pasta entree. It fed 3. The taste was subtle. The pasta would have been woefully dry if I hadn't added extra olive oil, plus some of the pasta cooking water. I also added fresh Parmesan cheese to give it a flavor boost, and an extra clove of garlic. While it was okay, I expect better from Betty Crocker! (I have the diabetic cookbook, too, and the portion amounts that they specify verge on ridiculous!)

Quick, easy & tasty. I think I'll add some lime juice next time to add abit more zest. I liked the addition of the avocado & enjoyed all the other flavours together. Thanks for sharing.
