Smoked Salmon Pasta (Non Thermomix Recipe)

This is a dish that I’ve been making for years! Even though my husband is super meat loving, this is one of his favourite dishes and he regularly requests this for lunch or dinner.
You can use any type of pesto (basil pesto). I’ve tried many types of store bought pesto, and the Sacla Classic Pesto is our favourite and tastes amazing with the smoked salmon and avocado. It comes in a 190 gram bottle.
It is best served fresh, so usually I make enough for my husband, myself and the 2 boys (so approx. 3 servings).
It is a cold/room temperature pasta dish so is something that I also make for parties as it is easy to make beforehand as a side dish. 
Diced avocado
Add salmon, avocado, pine nuts, pesto and cheese to large bowl
Run cold water over pasta to cool down
Stir ingredients all together in large bowl
Enjoy! 🙂
