Bacon Basil Avocado Pasta #bacon #avocado #pasta


Well, I never intended to do another recipe today – but I couldn’t resist, my arm has been twisted ;)  From the reaction from you guys when I posted my snippet of our dinner on FB & Twitter via Instagram last night.  Wowzers!  Y’all apparently have a love affair with avocado too :)  Well, here’s a special treat for you – back-to-back recipe posts!

And don’t forget the Pecorino Romano cheese – a definite MUST for this dish – it shouldn’t be substituted!  It’s a yummy salty cheese with a strong flavor that matches the hardwood smoked bacon and basil perfectly.

*Oh, and be sure to scroll all the way down to the end of the post, because there are some more “avocado love” recipes waiting, just for you!

And now, I shall get right down to the nitty-gritty!
