Avo-Pasta

Pasta is probably one of my favourite things to eat in the world. Like ever.
I eat relatively healthy as you can tell from a large number of my posts, regardless of what my mother thinks. The problem is that when I go home to England I always want to eat all of my favourite foods... in one sitting. This includes many gin & tonics made by my dad, copious amounts of pasta, bread, chocolate, and those mini cocktail sausages from Marks and Spencer. They may be horrendously bad for you, but trust me when I say they are the greatest mini sausages you will ever eat!

Due to the fact I'm now considered a fully functioning adult, I actually have to pay for my own food (growing up; no fun), which limits me slightly. When I'm at home we always have a full fridge of excitement to play around with, being on my own however, means that I have to carefully pick and choose what I buy. Aside from on Fridays, which I consider my cheat day (in life). I basically go to all my favourite places and pig out for the day. From Chipotle to In N Out, it's a pretty heavenly day...

Sorry, daydreaming over.
Where were we? Oh yeah, pasta, healthy, all that jazz.
That's where this bad boy comes in


This is one of the simplest, most satisfyingly healthy recipes.
All you need is:

A handful of whole wheat spaghetti (handful and a half if you're like me)
1 jalapeño
Chopped cilantro
1 avocado
1 garlic clove
Dash of salt

Boil your water in a pan and then add your pasta.
Cook for about 10-12 minutes. Whole wheat takes a little longer than regular pasta.

In the meantime, chop up your avocado, cilantro, garlic and jalapeño.
Cut your jalapeño down the middle and cut out the stem in the middle of each one. Leave in the desired amount of peppers you want, depending on how spicy you want your food to be. I like mine spicy, solely because I think my dad may have fed me peppers as a baby. He can literally eat a vindaloo curry and be good to go. I've semi inherited the spicy gene. Either that or I no longer have any taste buds? I'm going to hope for the former.


Drain your pasta and then chuck everything into one pot together.


Mix it in thoroughly so that the avocado and the rest of the toppings go over ever spaghetti noodle and you get the full experience. Once all of this is done, plate up and enjoy!

N.B. if you like this dish, then don't forget to press the "yum" button at the bottom so that the recipe can be shared on Yummly. Then loads more people are able to experience food heaven! Thanks ❤️
