Ingredients

  • 400g fresh fettuccine
  • 1 large ripe avocado
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil (or olive oil)
  • 6 rashers bacon chopped (you can also use prawns or cooked chicken)
  • 2 teaspoons basil or tomato pesto (more to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • ½ c grated parmesan or crumbled feta cheese
  • Chilli flakes or powder to taste
  • salt & freshly ground pepper

Instructions

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente. Do NOT drain the water after cooking-you will need it for the sauce.
  2. Fry chopped bacon until crispy.
  3. In a blender place the avocado, oil, lemon juice, pesto and cheese. Pulse briefly to combine.
  4. Gradually add ½ -¾ c of the pasta cooking water to the blender and process until a creamy sauce is formed.
  5. Add salt and pepper (and chilli if desired) to taste.
  6. Combine the drained pasta, bacon and sauce together. Serve with extra cheese.
