READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by EdsGirlAngie

I could eat this everyday, I think! Lots of herbs and veggies, feta cheese, creamy avocado and a splash of tequila sauces up linguine (or fettucine). Bring on summer!

We enjoyed this recipe tonight for dinner. It was definitely a departure (in a good way!) from our typical pasta dishes. This tasted very fresh and reminded me of the flavors of summer. It involves a lot of chopping, so reserve the recipe for a night when you are not in a rush to get dinner to the table. We made no modifcations to the ingredients other than to use a little more jalapeno and angel hair pasta as I realized as I began the recipe that I was out of linguine. This worked ok, but the linguine would have been better. I served with a salad on the side. I would make this one again. Thanks!
