Bacon and Avocado Pasta Salad

Posted in : Salad on by : Pamela Reynoso




What You Need

3 Cups Angle Hair Pasta

1 Cubed Avocado

6 Slices Cooked BaconIMG_8247

1/4 Cup Fresh Basil

1 Lemon

1/3 Cup Parmesan Cheese

What You Need:

Break the pasta into fourths and cook according to the package directions.  Squeeze the lemon over the warm pasta and sprinkle with half the cheese.  Set aside and let the pasta cool.  Meanwhile, place all the basil leaves on top of each other, roll them up on the long end and thinly slice.  Once the pasta is cool, mix in all the bacon, basil, and avocado.  Sprinkle with the remaining cheese and add salt and pepper to taste.  Add more lemon juice if needed.

Note:  Any light dressing can be used with this dish, but make sure to put lemon juice on the avocados so they don’t turn brown.
