I tasted Avocado in Guacamole for the first time in Mexico. Frankly speaking I did ‘nt like its taste. Infact, it had no significant taste, just a creamy texture. But interesting thing about Avocado is that it acquires the taste of ingredients it is blended with and then the  taste becomes amazing. Gradually, I started liking Guacamole and started using Avocado in a number of dishes.

When I came to India, I missed eating Avocado. On one of my visits to Delhi’s INA market I found this and bought couple of them. I made Guacamole with one and the second one I used to make this delicious pasta. Its simple, light and very healthy.

Directions:
1. Boil Pasta and keep aside. Learn how to boil pasta here. Chop some tomatoes and take some corn kernels. I used canned but you can always take the packaged ones and boil them till they are soft and tender. Add pasta, tomatoes and Corn kernels together in a bowl.
