Great Recipe, was quick to make and tasted great. It sit's pretty light and we used it as a quick dinner.
Will definately be making this more often.
Not bad, but needed a little something more. I liked adding salsa for a bit more flavor. I would make this again but include some changes. Cheese would add a nice touch
Tastes very good with sour cream.
I picked this recipe because it seemed simple and it included similar ingredients from the Caribbean sweet potato salad that I also made. Once I cooked everythinng, I was a little intimadated bc it seemed an odd combination, but, suprisingly--it was very delicious--esp if you love avocados, as I do.
Good light pasta dish!
I left out the vegetarian chili, added a cup of frozen corn to the cooking pasta, substituted bowtie pasta for the spaghetti and topped the dish with feta cheese. My picky husband and daughter both liked it.
We really enjoyed this dish, and it was so quick and easy to make. I used bowtie pasta instead of angel hair & regular white onion instead of green onion, and we agreed to try it next time using turkey chili to give it more of a kick. Overall very satisfied!
Although this was interesting and extremely healthy, it wasn't a total hit. I love avocado, so this left me somewhat satisfied, but did little for anyone else. Also, it was a lot of chopping and effort for something that I could only give 3 stars.
Yum! This is a keeper! Easy, appeals to me, and appeals to my kids. It fits all of my criterea for a great meal!
