This was fantastic! DH asked why we had never used avocado in pasta before since it was so delicious. I made sauce as written and added a diced red bell pepper and cherry tomatoes for color and to make it a main course. Fresh, flavorful, and easy. Will definitely make again.

I left out the bacon because I am a vegetarian, but this was still so good!! I think I will make this more than red sauce pasta for sure.

Good and easy. I added a little red pepper flakes for kick, and used the pasta water to thin it a little.
