  • 2 servings choice of pasta – cooked – any pasta of choice will work!
  • ¼ cup reserved pasta water
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 3 large cloves of garlic, pressed
  • Juice of a half a large lemon
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp. black pepper
  • Pinch of red chili flakes
  • 1 small avocado, cut into cubes


  1. Cook desired amount of pasta in well-salted boiling water. Follow pasta package instructions for cooking time. Please note, you should not overcook your pasta. Make sure it’s al dente.
  2. Heat a medium-sized frying pan on medium-low heat for 20-30 seconds. Add your olive oil and let it heat for around 15 seconds before adding your garlic. Cook down your garlic for around 3-4 minutes, or until your home is completely fragrant and the garlic has become more golden. Increase your heat to high and add your lemon. Give the mixture a good stir, you will notice little bubbles starting to develop around the sides of that pan. That’s when you want to decrease the heat to low and add your pasta. Using tongs, give the dish a good stir and increase heat to medium while adding the reserved pasta water. Cook for around 2 minutes before adding the salt, pepper, and chili flakes.
  3. Before serving, stir in the avocado.
  4. Serve hot with garlic bread!
