    Taylor's Mommy's Note:

    Creamy, thick, and rich with lots of garlic flavour and a hint of lemon. The avocado works wonderfully in this recipe to create a sauce so creamy and thick, you will think there is cream hiding in there. Found on a recipe blog and posted here for safe keeping :)

      Please note: This dish does not reheat well due to the avocado in the sauce. Please serve immediately.

      Made for PAC2013. We LOVE it! This recipe has become a family favorite! I will be making this once a week from now on. I used tortellini as my choice of pasta. I am also able to get 3 servings from the sauce. It's pretty thick so I added some of the cooking water from the pasta to help thin it out a bit. This actually stretched the sauce further! It's a great vegan recipe, too. If you use brown rice pasta, it could be gluten free! It's so versatile and wonderful! LOVE IT...did I say that already?! We love it!
