Anyone who knows me, especially the people that I work with, know that I am obsessed with avocado. I will definitely have it once in the week for lunch, if not five times. I love it!
Most days, I’ll simply mash up my avocado into a guacamole and enjoy on some homemade brown soda bread. When I have the time and facilities, I love making and eating this creamy avocado pasta. The flavours of the garlic and basil with the smooth, silky avocado are wonderful.
Hope you enjoy!
3 garlic cloves, sliced
1 red onion, sliced
1 red chilli, deseeded and sliced

Heat a non-stick pan over a medium heat and cook the garlic, onion and chilli for 10 minutes, until soft.
Mix in the guacamole, coconut milk, lime juice and reserved pasta water and simmer for 5 minutes.

Season to taste with salt and pepper.
