Well ladies I have to tell ya I LOVE pasta. I am not one of those sad girls who swears off carbs and blames pasta for her life struggles. CARBS ARE GOOD FOR YOU! It's just that you want to eat the good kind of carbs, not basic white pasta. Great recipe with carbs is here. 

Ok so here is what you need:

  • 1 16oz bag of brown rice pasta
  • 1 8-ounce container of cherry tomatoes 
  • 1 avocado, chopped
  • 1 cup fresh basil 
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp olive oil 
  • 3 minced cloves garlic 
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice 
  • salt and pepper to taste
