Skinny Fiesta Pasta by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blogBy the way, if you’re an avocado person, which I’m so not, you’ll love this. And if you’re not an avocado person, of which I’d have to agree with you, then you’ll still love this recipe. Why? Because. It. Is. All. About. Flavor. And these flavors go together so beautifully.
