Nutritional values

Valuable unsaturated fatty acids from the avocado plus fiber from the pasta make this a delicous and healthy dish. Lime and orange not only ensure a fresh taste, but also a good portion of vitamin C.

Pay attention to the ripeness of the avocado: in order for the sauce to be beautifully aromatic, a really ripe avocado is required.
