Squashed Frog Pasta aka Avocado & Salami Pasta

My daughter promptly named this Squashed Frog Pasta. The salami is the guts, the pasta is the intestines and the green sauce is, well, the rest of the frog. Whatever you call it, it was delicious, quick and all went back for seconds.

Add to salted boiling water 500g of fresh Egg Pappadelle Pasta. Or, any other pasta you like if you don’t have this.

Add the following to the Thermomix and blitz on Speed 8 for around 15 seconds:

  • Flesh of 2 avocadoes
  • half a bunch of finely chopped spring onions, including greens
  • two really big slugs of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 250g natural yoghurt
  • splash of cream
  • salt and lots of cracked black pepper

Taste and add a bit more olive oil and salt and pepper if required.

Slice in to thin strips around 100g of salami, you choose how hot, for my kids I used mild hungarian.

Warm through at 70 degrees for around 7 minutes, Speed 1.

Drain pasta, reserving some of the liquid. Add the sauce to the pasta, if it’s a little thick, add a bit of the reserved liquid back in.

Serve with more cracked pepper, or if you like it hot, sprinkle with chilli flakes.
