Welcome to June’s Secret Recipe Club reveal! This month I was paired up with Asiya from Chocolate & Chillies. Asiya’s photo’s are absolutely stunning and I enjoyed checking out her recipes! And I enjoyed learning that Asiya & I both got started blogging for very similar reasons! :)

15 Minute Creamy Avocado Pasta | MomsTestKitchen.com | #secretrecipeclubWhen I was looking through her recipes, I definitely had trouble picking just one. She really had a bunch that I wanted to make & honestly will probably make soon! But for this month’s reveal, I decided on this quick & easy dinner. This was a perfect recipe for us for dinner. We’ve been so busy already this summer that our dinner’s have really been slacking so being able to get a homemade, healthy meal on the table was a hit!
