Avocado ‘Carbonara’ with Zucchini Spaghetti

This is a really quick weekday dish, everything can be done in under 15 minutes. Throw half the ingredients in the blender, heat up the zucchini and you’re practically done!

This gives a really rich sauce with plenty of nutrients from the avocado, spinach and zucchini and lots of flavour from the Parmesan, garlic and bacon. This is exactly the sort of meal I like to cook after a long work day, comforting and quick. Keep an eye on the zucchini ‘spaghetti’ when you’re cooking it, it can quickly turn to mush if you’re not careful. I’d take the cautious route and go for slightly underdone, al dente instead.
