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.
