Ingredients

  • 12

    ounces elbows pasta

  • 5

    slices bacon, diced

  • 2

    avocados, halved, seeded, peeled and diced

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

  • 2

    teaspoons fresh thyme leaves, for garnish

  • For the lemon thyme dressing

  • 3/4

    cup mayonnaise

  • 1/4

    cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

  • 1 1/2

    tablespoons lemon zest

  • 1

    tablespoon sugar

  • 1

    teaspoon fresh thyme leaves

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

  • 1/3

    cup olive oil

Directions

To make the dressing, combine mayonnaise, lemon juice, lemon zest, sugar and thyme in the bowl of a food processor; season with salt and pepper, to taste. With the motor running, add the olive oil in a slow stream until emulsified; set aside. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions; drain well. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add bacon and cook until brown and crispy, about 6-8 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. In a large bowl, combine pasta, bacon, avocado, lemon-thyme dressing, salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately, garnished with thyme. Adapted from The Cozy Apron.
