Post Work Dinner: Super Easy Avocado Pasta

Happy hump day everyone! Today I'm sharing the most ridiculously easy post work dinner idea ever. So easy it almost seems silly to write it down but ultimately I guess that's exactly what we're all looking for at the end of a busy day. Something healthy, delicious and so very quick to make that we barely even notice we've been in the kitchen! I love this meal, it's a great way to use up over ripe avocado and is tasty, fresh and will have you coming back for more time and time again. So without further ado, here's how to make this super simple post work dinner fix. 

Easy Avocado Pasta

Super Easy Avocado Pasta

Serves 2-3

YOU WILL NEED

250g uncooked pasta (I use linguine), 1 large ripe avocado, 1-2 cloves of garlic to taste, 1/2 freshly squeezed lemon, 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, sea salt and black pepper to taste, a sprinkling of sliced smoked salmon to serve (optional)

TO MAKE

So I said this was simple and it really couldn't be any easier! Bring a pan of water to the boil and cook your pasta as per packet instructions. 

Meanwhile add the avocado flesh, garlic, olive oil, lemon juice and a little salt and pepper to a processor and blend together until smooth. Season again to taste and if necessary add a little more oil and/or lemon juice to adjust to your desired consistency and flavour.

Once your pasta is cooked, remove from the heat and drain. Add back into the pan and stir in the avocado sauce. 

Serve with a little smoked salmon and fresh black pepper, or just enjoy it on its own. It's totally and utterly gorgeous and I'm confident you'll want to make this again and again.

Goodness I feel cheeky that this post is so short but then that's really the nature of this delicious dinner! So I hope it helps out on those days when you want something fresh but don't want the hassle of hours spent in the kitchen. Happy eating my friends!
