Avocado pasta
A delicious dinner for the whole family, including your baby!

120g macaroni pasta

4 tbsp olive oil

1 medium white onion, finely diced

2 cloves garlic, crushed

2 ripe avocados, halved and stones removed

1/2 lemon, juice only

15g fresh basil leaves, finely chopped

Black pepper, to season

80g frozen peas

Cook the pasta as per the instructions on the pack. When soft, remove from the heat, drain and run some cold water over it to prevent it sticking together. Leave it aside while you make the sauce.

Heat the olive oil in a saucepan over a medium heat and gently fry the onion until soft. Add the garlic and cook for a further 2–3 minutes.

Add the onion mixture and avocados to a blender with the lemon juice and half of the basil leaves and blend until smooth and creamy. Add a little pepper to lightly season. Then pour the sauce back into the saucepan, add the pasta and frozen peas and stir well. Bring to a simmer, then pour into bowls and decorate with the remaining basil leaves.
