Very nice simple tasty dish. I would say go easy on the garlic and lemon as they can over power everything else, and have the heat on under the pan when you toss it altogether as it goes cold quickly.

I made this for one person so I used 70 gr spelt pasta and halve an avocado. I kept all other ingredients the same. I also added 100 Gr of cherry tomatoes and 2 tbsp of toasted pine nuts. I used one extra clove of garlic which I fried together with the tomatoes in a little olive oil. I added the salmon gave it a couple of stirs and while still on a minor heat I then added the pasta, avocadosauce, and the cooking water. Finally I stirred in the pine nuts. I served it with the lemon on the side and sprinkled some on everyone once in a while. I feel adding the tomatoes really lifted the dish. Without them it would have been a bit to heavy and salty for me. The pine nuts were overpowered by the other flavours. Not sure either if the spelt pasta made that much of a difference. I'm sure regular spaghetti will be fine as well.

Loved this recipe, so delicious and quick! I often find myself adapting recipes but I wouldn't change a thing for this one.

I really like this recipe, love all the ingredients, tastes so good and is healthy to boot! Don't forget to reserve the pasta water as it is needed to loosen the avocado mix. I also love spelt spaghetti but have only been able to find it in Sainsbury's where we live. Wish Tesco and Asda would stock it!
