Pasta with Chicken, Avocado and Peanut Sauce

Cooking time:  25 minutes for menu      Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

     Another pasta dish that is not quite salad, not quite pasta.  Best served warm as it keeps the sauce creamier. All indoor cooking for this meal.

Pasta with Chicken, Avocado and Peanut Sauce

Total time: 25 minutes
   Peanut sauce goes very well with avocado and is great with a warm, summery pasta. I used the pepper raw, but you can add it to the onions to sauté if you like.
