Bacon and Avocado Pasta Salad

I made a slightly simplified version of the original recipe, cutting out the oil and lemon zest as I was running out of time trying to make this for lunch. It was really tasty, I love how the avocado makes a kind of sauce and I will definitely be trying it as a dressing again.

Bacon and Avocado Pasta Salad (adapted from Blog Chef)
(Serves 1)

60g dried pasta
2 bacon medallions, cut into strips
1/2 avocado, chopped
1/2 tbsp light mayonnaise
squeeze lemon juice
1/4 tsp dried thyme

Cook the pasta according to packet instructions, drain and run under cold water drain well.

Meanwhile, fry the bacon in frying pan until cooked. put onto a piece of kitchen roll to soak up some of the fat.

Mix together the mayonnaise, lemon juice and thyme in a bowl, add the pasta, bacon and avocado and stir to combine. You can mash the avocado a bit if you fancy or leave it chunky. Serve.
