Quick food: Avocado Pasta by Majnouna Quick food: Avocado Pasta by Majnouna
:pointl: Check out the book!

This has been a life saver when I'm really busy and prepare my food at the very last minute. The dressing is done by the time the pasta is cooked, and any amount of improvisation can be done with the herbs included. Do make sure you only prepare what you're going to eat in one sitting: heating avocado is always tricky (I let the pasta cool down to eating temperature before mixing them) and this doesn't bear reheating! Also, I've often made it with grated British cheddar because that's what I had on hand, so any cheese of that sort (gruyère etc) is fine.

More recipes in my folder: Quick Food, Not Fast Food.

As an Italian, I would have never thought of mixing avocado with pasta. I am looking forward to trying this now. :)

If heat is a problem, wouldn't it be better to eat this as a cold pasta salad? Or is it meant to be a warm meal?

I have it warm, the avocado is not directly heated so it's fine. But I'm sure it would be delicious as a cold pasta salad!

I'll try both. :) Or rather, I will most likely end up doing too much and then eat the rest cold. I tend to do that. --"

Tried it, aside from the lemon juice (which is too much for my taste), it goes WOOOONDERFULLY. <3 <3

And best of all, I still have the ingredients to make another one, so I can do a revenge attempt soon!
Thank you so much!
