For dinner tonight I decided on this avocado basil pasta, which looked very appealing in the photo. Besides, what's not to love about a dish that includes avocado AND bacon? This dish was also easy for me to put together - I had most of the ingredients in my kitchen already, and there were only two steps. Cooking for the lazy, my favourite!
I halved the recipe since the recipe serves four and I was only cooking for two, but I overestimated the quantity of pasta (luckily my boyfriend's stomach is a bottomless pit and he was able to finish it) and the avocado (it was quite large but the mushier of the two I had, so I wanted to use it before it went bad).
|Now, doesn't this look nice all laid out?|
Once all the ingredients are assembled, all one has to do is:
- Boil water. Put pasta in the water, bring back to boil.
- Put the other ingredients in a bowl. Mix with pasta once it's ready.
This is what it is supposed to look like:
