Avocado-Tomato Rotelle

I love it when avocados are cheap ;)

This has a great, almost no-cook sauce. In fact, I bet this would make a fantastic pasta salad.

Works well as a quick lunch or dinner.

Serves 2

4 oz. rotelle (wheel-shaped pasta)
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 medium tomato, diced
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1 large avocado, diced
1 tbsp. chopped fresh basil
Parmesan cheese

1. Cook the pasta according to package directions. Drain.

2. While the pasta cooks, heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium heat and then cook the garlic for 30 seconds. Add the tomatoes, salt, and pepper and cook 5 minutes or until warmed through.

3. Toss the tomato mixture with the pasta and then add the avocado and basil. Sprinkle with cheese just before serving.

Avocado-Tomato Rotelle from the July 2006 issue of Cooking Pleasures.

At this time it sounds like Drupal is the best blogging platform available right now.
(from what I've read) Is that what you're

Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested
to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a
youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.

I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it
with someone!

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something that I think I
would never understand. It seems too complicated
and very broad for me. I'm looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or
copyright violation? My website has a lot
of completely unique content I've either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any solutions to help stop content from being ripped off? I'd certainly appreciate it.
