Avocado, Tomato & Olive Pasta Salad

This was one of the very first meals I made after having drastically changed my diet and eating habits. I always loved a big bowl of pasta so I needed to make sure I found a version more suitable to my new dietry requirements and this one worked just perfectly. I've had friends and family asking me for the recipe for this one, so here it is and I hope you like it:

What you'll need:

-Gluten free pasta
-1 ripe avocado
-Cherry vine tomatoes/not on the vine (vine tomatoes just tend to be that little bit sweeter)
-Handful of black olives
-Handful of fresh basil

How to make:

Boil some water for the pasta and cook the pasta until soft. Whilst your pasta cooks, chop up the olives, tomatoes and some basil. Use half of the avocado to make an avocado cream which will act as the pasta sauce - all you need to do is place the half avocado into a bowl and mash up using a fork until it creates a smooth paste. Simply cut up the other half of the avocado into chunks to add to the dish. Pop all these ingredients in a bowl with some salt and pepper and mix it up.
Serve hot or cold, both are just as yummy - Tuck in and enjoy!
