Have you ever tried pasta with avocado? You should! It tastes very good!


Ingredients (serves 3)

  • 300 g gluten-free penne
  • rock salt
  • 1/2 lemon
  • olive oil
  • 1 avocado
  • 150 g marinated artichokes
  • 1 punnet medley tomatoes (or 300 g grape and/or cherry tomatoes)

Method

  1. Bring a pan of water with rock salt added to boil. Cook the pasta for around 14 minutes or according to instructions.
  2. In a big bowl use a fork to mash the avocado flesh. Mix with some salt, the juice of half lemon and a splash of olive oil.
  3. Cut the tomatoes in half and add to the bowl together with the artichokes. (If the artichokes are too big, cut them in smaller pieces)
  4. Drain the pasta, mix everything together and serve.

Notes

Use your favorite type of pasta, gluten-free or not.

  • Love this recipe as I never thought to add artichoke and it is beautiful you can’t taste it a lot and that’s good for the grandkids.

  • I love avocado with anything. It’s my go-to that is used on toast, bread, crackers, in pastas, in salads, you name it. We’ve never tried artichokes, so I might replace this, but otherwise love any new additions to my pasta repertoire.

  • Avocado and artischokes are such good combi, I like to eat it just on it’s own without pasta but with some pine nuts, pistachio’s dukkah or cashews.

  • Penne is my favourite type of pasta and always keep a couple of packs in the cupboard. I find them versatile and quick to make while long pastas such as the good old spaghetti can be far too awkward to make especially the very long strands that can get over the pot . I love avocados so will try this as always trying to find easy sauces besides tomato .
