Avocado Coriander and Cilantro Pasta ~ Warm pasta in a creamy sauce of avocado and spiced with coriander and cilantro ~ The Complete Savorist A couple of weeks ago I got one of those mass-generated emails from The Spice House.  They had a call for photos.  They have numerous recipes on their website but have very few photos.  I thought it might be fun to make one or two and send some photographs to them. You can imagine the task of combing through their recipes and finding one that I actually had spices for, as they sell many exotic ones that my humble spice cabinet does not contain.
Avocado Coriander and Cilantro Pasta ~ Warm pasta in a creamy sauce of avocado and spiced with coriander and cilantro ~ The Complete Savorist I’m glad we stumbled upon this one.  It was one of those dishes that I couldn’t quite pinpoint in my mind how it was going to taste but I was very pleased when I tasted it.  The assembly directions state to add garlic, but there is no garlic listed in the list of ingredients.  I added two cloves of grated garlic.  I chose to use lime instead of lemon (the directions say lemon or lime) because I love the flavor of cilantro and lime together.

Hope you enjoy this dish.
