I bought some avocado with the full intention of using it to make some sushi. Unfortunately, I found insects living in my sushi rice and had to abort that plan. What to do with a lone avocado? Make some avocado pasta, of course!

Makes 2 servings.


  • 250g pasta of choice (I used penne)
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1 tbsp of garlic
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Handful of shredded parmesan
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • 100ml cream
  1. Cook pasta to desired tenderness. The easiest way to do it for me is to do it in the microwave.
  2. Heat olive oil in a pot and add garlic. add cream and parmesan as well as chilli flakes.
  3. Add cooked pasta into the pot and and the avocado at the end. Season with cracked pepper if you so desire.
Delicious, easy and inexpensive.
