Do you love 10 minute easy meals that are healthy and delectable? And something both kids and adults will enjoy? Then you have to try this easy gluten free, vegan, vegetarian meal! 

You know how crazy my family is about avocados so I keep trying different recipes with it like the Avocado and sundried Tomato Thepla, Creamy Avocado Kefir Lassi,Avocado and Caramelized Onion Rice, the avocado chutney wrap with a different flavored chutney, Dal Vada….. with a healthy twist! and even the Luscious Avocado Coconut Burfi…in 5 minutes! And this is just the partial list of my avocado recipes. The avocado has not failed me yet. My family has loved each and every one of these dishes.

The Penne Pasta in Avocado Chutney sauce is another great addition to my long list of avocado recipes and is definitely going to be a regular on our dinner menu. I used gluten free penne but you could use any pasta you like.

We have been having some cold, snowy, cloudy days in our neck of the woods and this bright, warm, scrumptious meal sure cheered me up. Hope it does the same for you.

    1. Arv, It is such an easy and healthy recipe that tastes delicious! My friend’s mother took back an avocado seed to India and is growing avocados in her garden.

      1. That’s a major problem here. Availability of avocado except for cities like Delhi or Mumbai is a pain! Although it’s very common to buy parsley, bell peppers, zucchini which too were exotic, once.

  2. Beautiful recipe, I just love those bright greens. Actually, I have been meaning to try avocado on pasta for a long while now – I’m a bit of an avocado addict. They’re just so delicious and creamy that I can’t resist, even if they’re just plain pitted avocados ❤ . They're a bit expensive here in the UK to eat often, but will keep this recipe in mind next time I get to buy some. Great photos too Sandhya 🙂

    1. Thanks so much Ellanor. I am an avocado addict too 🙂 The best part about this recipe for avocado lovers like us is that this recipe makes a good amount of the avocado chutney sauce, so we can enjoy it even more !

    1. Deepthi, You can totally omit the sun dried tomatoes too. The sun dried tomatoes have a deep concentrated tomato taste so I add them. If you like tomato flavor, you may saute fresh finely diced tomatoes until all liquid is evaporated and add them too.


    1. It does store well Priya. I keep it for 2/3 days in refrigerator and the color does not change. Hope your kids like it as much as mine do.
