This was VERY good. I would definitely recommend this to other people. I think my wife had 3 helpings, and she's not a big eater. I did go with more garlic. The only thing I would do different is maybe cut down on the lemon a very little bit, and I did add a bit of salt, but I think that's just a personal thing. Again, this was delicious, thank you.

I used more garlic (3-4 cloves) and added a cored, seeded, chopped tomato to the avocado mixture prior to cooking. I also used 2% milk. This recipe was very easy and had an excellent, mild flavor.

I have to give this full marks too for a quick-n-easy supper. I came home hungry and with little in my fridge and just a few minutes later I was chowing down on some filling pasta. I went with three cloves of garlic and used fettucini pasta. I think if I were serving it to guests I would want to dress it up a bit, perhaps with some fresh herbs sprinkled on top or some chopped, lightly sautéed tomatoes, but as a throw-together meal it's great.
