JEN’S FAVORITE AVOCADO PASTA

JEN'S DELICIOUS LIFE

I’m gonna share this awesome dish with you now. This is from my other food blog (All my older recipes will be moved here soon), but I want to show you what kind of food you can expect from me. And this one became very popular and I totally understand that because it’s so good.

When I was in Finland 3 weeks ago, I got to taste a super good avocado pasta. I had actually never eaten avocado with pasta before, and I love avocado so much and it’s my Nr 1 craving at the moment haha. So, I really wanted to eat this dish again and I did it my own way, and….. It became so good. I recommend to do this pasta dish, maybe this weekend with a glas of good white wine. You will get addicted.

YOU NEED: 

400g of pasta
5 dl pasta water
3 cloves of garlic, chopped
3 shallot onion, chopped
1,5 red fresh chili, chopped, without the seeds
2,5 dl of dry white wine
4-5 avocados, depends how big they are
2 dl chopped fresh parsley
2 dl chopped fresh basil
1,5 dl grated parmesan
1 lime
Olive oil
Salt and pepper

Olive oil and grated parmesan for garnish

DO THIS:

  1. Start to cook the pasta with salt and olive oil to ‘al dente’ and save about 5 dl of the pasta water for later
  2. Fry the chopped shallot, garlic and the chili (remember to take out the seeds from the chili) in olive oil
  3. Pour the wine into the pan and stir around, let it boil together a little
  4. Add the cooked pasta and mix everything together, turn off the heat!
  5. Pour the pasta water and stir
  6. Add the avocado pieces, the chooped perslay, basil and the parmesan in to the pan and mix everything together
  7.  Squeeze lime juice over the pasta and taste it with salt and pepper
  8. Granish it with some olive oil and grated parmesan. :)

ENJOY!!!

DAILY LIFE

My name is Jennifer Berg and I’m one of the new bloggers at Trendnet and I’m so excited to start blogging here and share a part of my life with you guys.

Unfortunately I can’t write in Icelandic yet, but I hope it will come in the nearest future. I hope you all are understanding and you can always use Icelandic to me. And then I learn at the same time. :)

So, I thought I would start writing a little bit about myself. A short version haha.

I’m a Swedish girl who moved to Iceland for about 1 year ago. Living in Reykjavik with my Icelandic soccer player and my baby Knútur, who is a french bulldog.

I’m 25 years old (1991). Born and raised in Sweden, in a small town called Borås. My mother is from Chiang Mai, north of Thailand and my father was Swedish (he passed away when I was 10y old <3). I’ve always been a girl who loves to look for new things, new places to explore and new people to meet. And I’m not afraid to take chances in life. ‘Better an oops than a what if’.

In my blog you will read a lot about food, as that’s my biggest passion, I love to cook and eat haha. So I will share many of my favourite recipes and food pictures. I had a food blog before, and All my recipes will be moved to this site soon.
