Bacon, Avocado and Basil Pasta Salad

This Bacon, Avocado and Basil Pasta Salad is so tasty!  The hubs and I loved it and the kids even all ate it without any complaints.  If you ask me, you really can't go wrong when bacon is involved. :)  The avocado and basil don't hurt a bit, either.

1 (16 ounce) package bow tie pasta, cooked according to package directions
8 slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
3 avocados, diced small
1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded

Place diced avocado in a large bowl and pour lemon juice over the top; stir to coat.  Add pasta, bacon, and basil; stir to combine.  Pour olive oil in a small pan and heat over medium heat.  Add minced garlic and cook until fragrant; about 30 seconds.  Pour over the pasta mixture and sprinkle with salt and Parmesan cheese; mix well.

  1. Yum! Everything is better with bacon, and this pasta looks delicious :)

  2. This looks delicious! I love a simple, fresh pasta meal!

  3. Do you think this could served cold?

    1. Yes, it is still delicious cold. If you are serving it cold, I would wait until just before serving to add the avocados. :)

  4. I love all of those things, so I am pretty sure I would like this salad! Thanks for sharing at Sweet & Savory Saturdays #21!
