Shrek Pasta

So I had a bag of Avocados in the pantry, that needed to be used, and I came across this super yummy pasta recipe:

1 lb chicken breast, diced
1 tsp olive oil
2 avocados, mashed
500 ml whipping cream
2 cups grated cheese
1/4 cup pine nuts
1 box fettucine

It's really simple, just brown the chicken in the oil, adding the nuts halfway through.
Mix the cream, cheese and avocados, and add to the chicken. Let it simmer until your pasta is ready, and voila! Shrek Pasta!

For a low fat option, I made a cream sauce (using a roux with flour and butter) with 2% milk and also I added fresh cilantro and basil and some roasted garlic from Epicure. It was so good, you have to try it!
