Avocado Basil Pasta

I would have never thought of putting bacon and avocado in a pasta dish.  Surprisingly, it was a tasty combination.  I loved that the entire dinner took 20 minutes to make.  The only negative is that it doesn't provide leftovers because the avocados will brown.  

Avocado Basil Pasta
Adapted from Recipe.com

8 ounces of pasta

6 slices of crisp, cooked, drained and crumbled bacon
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
2 tbs. lemon juice
1 tbs. olive oil
3 cloves minced garlic
salt and pepper to taste 
1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese

1. Cook pasta according to directions on package & drain.
2. In a large bowl combine the avocados, bacon, basil, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, pepper, and salt. Add the hot pasta and toss to combine. Transfer to a serving bowl. Sprinkle with cheese. 

Makes 4 servings.
