Pretty good. I didn't add the Italian dressing, and probably used less avocado in the dressing than called for (mine are small). It vaguely seems like guacamole + pasta, but that's not really a bad thing =)


I really want to try that mayonaise...just have to get to the store to get an avacado and basil!
