THE BEST QUICK AND EASY PASTA EVER – PROSCIUTTO AND AVOCADO PASTA
OMG!!! This is my favourite go-to pasta. Easy, fresh and perfect as a summer or winter dish! I made it last night and I want it again for dinner tonight! It’s easy, filling, crispy, salty and avocado-y all in one! A winner I think. I got the original recipe from my sister-in-law, but I lost it but its so easy you can make it up as you go along! I think that she got it from an Avocado Australia flyer in the supermarket, so I can’t take the credit for it – but it is too good not to share!
80 grams of sliced prosciutto (about 5 slices)
juice of 1-2 lemons (1 mild, 2 a little zesty!)
40 ml olive oil
How to put it together:
Boil water for pasta, season as you normally would (I add a dash of oil and a pinch of salt)
While waiting to boil, slice up the prosciutto to be 1/2 inch strips
Add pasta to boiling water, cook as packet describes (10-14 mins)
In a little saucepan, fry the prosciutto on medium-high heat until crispy
Cut avocado and dice into pieces, add into bowl.
Juice the lemons and add to avocado.
Stir in the oil and coat avocado.
Drain pasta, place in serving bowl. Put the avocado and lemon mixture into the bowl and stir to coat.
Add the crispy prosciutto.
You can add shaved parmesan on top if you like cheese on your pasta – but I don’t think it needs it!
Serves 4 people!
