Avocado and Bacon Pasta Salad

IMG_8035
It’s beginning to be that time of the year, when the heat heats, and I don’t feel like eating much or even cooking for that matter.  During the summer at our house, we BBQ quite a bit, as well as eat lots of salads.  The kids aren’t always too found of lettuce based salads, so sometimes a cold pasta salad fits the bill.  And you can’t go wrong when you add bacon, as bacon makes everything taste great!  Another thing I like about salads, is that you can put anything you like in them.  This pasta salad was great as is, though I might add an extra avocado, and maybe even some olives and frozen peas or capers next time.
Serves 6 for about $0.70/serving
INGREDIENTS:
IMG_8010
8 oz. pasta – I used mini farfalle – ($0.98)
2 medium avocados, diced – ($1.36)
6 slices bacon, crisp cooked, drained and crumbled – ($1.24)
2/3 cup chopped fresh basil – I just used dried, but fresh would have been MUCH better!
2 Tbsp. Lemon juice
1 Tbsp. olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
1/8 tsp. salt
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
DIRECTIONS:
Cook pasta as directed on package.  Drain and add olive oil.  Prep all other ingredients.

Add to cooled pasta and mix well.  Chill until ready to serve.
ENJOY!

    Where do you get two medium avocados for $1.36?! They are $1.50 each here, at least. Every now and then I can find them for a really good 5/$5 sale.

      Kristen, I am not sure where you live, but here in Boise, ID at our local Winco, I usually get them for about $0.68/each. Almost always they are under $1…$1.50 seems spendy!!
