You’ve had a long weekend and Monday is here! You want an easy dinner that will fill your family’s tummies fast.
Pasta will always come to the rescue, my friends. Always a hit with the kids. And the best thing is pasta goes with pretty much anything. Even avocado! And these are in plenty here. Beautiful, big, creamy and delicious!
Preheat your oven to 200 degrees Celsius and line the baking tray, gather your veggies. I used courgette, green pepper, onion, butternut and garlic. Chop them in more or less equal pieces. Toss the butternut in olive oil, mixed herbs and salt then bake for about 20 minutes. Toss the other vegetables with olive oil, salt, pepper and dried mixed herbs, you can add some balsamic vinegar to the oil mix if you want. Then add to the butternut and bake for another twenty minutes.
As the veggies bake, you can get started on your pasta. I used spaghetti. Remember the golden rules of making spaghetti. Do not cut! Salt the water! Water should be at a rolling boil before adding the pasta! and whatever other instructions that could be on the pack 🙂
As the spaghetti cooks, you can get started on your ‘pasta sauce’. Blend one ripe avocado, a few almonds, herbs, lemon juice, salt and black pepper, and a tbsp of olive oil. Blend till creamy.
