    1. Bring salted water to a boil to cook your pasta. Once the water is bubbling, toss in your pasta and let it cook to your desired tenderness.
    2. While the pasta is cooking, combine lemon juice, minced garlic, and olive oil in a bowl or food processor and mix well. Toss in slices of avocado, fresh chopped parsley, and a bit of salt and mix until smooth and creamy.
    3. Rinse and drain your pasta and set it aside.

    Used 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder for garlic, didn’t have bacon, cut chicken thighs. The ingredients are confusing, I used 2 tablespoons lemon juice and 2 tablespoons olive oil. Boyfriend says 4 stars, I thought it was weird but ok. Maybe would add another avocado in the future.

    I had to cut a few corners and improvise a bit and it was still super delicious! Will definitely make again.. with the proper ingredients next time.

    This was amazing haha I added a dairy free Alfredo sauce with an avocado oil base to make it creamier.

    I was really unsure about an avocado sauce/cream. But wow it tastes good, and coated the pasta so easily. Used linguine though. Cooked the garlic a Lil beforehand. It's filling and worth the try!

    It was delicious! I did have to veriate from the original bc my avocado wasn’t ripe enough. I added pesto to the avocado mix to soften it and also added crushed red pepper to the chicken. I highly recommend it.

    REALLY LIKED THIS RECIPE! I went light on the salt and cayenne but wished I had use more. The chicken and bacon were excellent with the pasta. I used minced garlic out of the jar but will try sautéed next time when adding to sauce.. overall i found it very good and will make again.

    Tasty, but I will not be making it again.

    Excellent! Will definitely do again. I cooked the garlic before, as a previous comment suggested. Also I use 2 avocados instead of one. You can eat it warm or cold, both are good!

    I was a little hesitant to make this but it’s super yummy!! Added garlic powder and onion powder to chicken but that’s just my own preference. Definitely recommend!

    Good easy dish. Would use a little more pasta and I put a little extra lemon juice (but it was unnecessary).

    Very nice. Added sour cream to the avocado and fried small peppers with the chicken and added freshly sliced peppers to the pasta. Awesome delicious recipe.

    Pretty good. The chicken and the sauce went really well together—it took me a while though, so it will likely be a while before we have it again, if we do.

    This was okay. The recipe would have been more helpful by explaining whether to serve hot or cold, or to keep the garlic raw or cook it. The way the recipe reads, it is assumed cold with raw garlic. But we found it a lot more pleasant warm but still found the raw garlic to be overpowering. I would recommend either pan frying the garlic before throwing it in the sauce, or using a very sparing amount of raw garlic.

    I didn’t think it was worth the work. But my husband thought it was very tasty!
