For Diabetics

In a large bowl, combine olive oil, vinegar, basil, green onions, sun dried tomatoes and half the avocado. Toss ingredients well to evenly coat with the oil and vinegar. Cook the pasta in boiling water for about six minutes (or until "al dente"). Drain pasta; pour into a salad bowl with the other ingredients while pasta is still hot. Toss together; serve immediately. Use the remaining avocado as a garnish on top of the pasta.


Serving suggestions: Serve with 2 to 3 ounces of lean meat and additional steamed vegetables for a complete main meal.
