Charred Avocado Orecchiette

It’s no secret that pasta loves creamy things. So it’s hardly a surprise that avocado gets along with orecchiette like a pal. And with tomatoes, garlic, and feta cheese thrown into the mix, it becomes a jolly collision of Mediterranean and Southwestern cuisines. Think of this as a border-hopping, globe-trotting recipe that still features all the familiar flavors you know and love.


Produced in a facility that processes eggs, milk, fish, peanuts, sesame, shellfish, soy, tree nuts, and wheat.
