Delicious Avocado Pasta

Here's a heart-healthy avocado pasta that is super easy to make and is oh-so-creamy! Avocado is extremely nutritious, loaded with monounsaturated fatty acids that are good for your heart. They are also packed with fibre, contributing to weight loss and can help reduce blood sugar spikes. While avocados are high in fat, this healthy fat content actually helps to increase the absorption of fat-soluble antioxidants, and can help you feel fuller for longer periods.
