Nifty Avocado Pasta

GBGF Nifty Avocado Pasta 3

This pasta is nifty.

I like the word nifty. The only other person I know that uses that word is my father, so I don’t know what that says about me. Regardless, I like the word nifty, and I like to slip it into casual conversation.

Why does nifty even mean? It’s so vague, yet positive. Whenever I have run out of creative positive adjectives, I turn to nifty to fill the void. Hence, the name of this pasta dish.

I love every little part of this pasta dish, individually. So, it comes as no surprise that the combination of these ingredients leads to such deliciousness.

You know what’s really nifty about this dish??

It involves spinach pasta! GLUTEN FREE SPINACH PASTA. As in, fancy gf spinach pasta made by a normal gf brand!!
