Instructions

Start cooking the spaghetti in a large saucepan of salted boiling water.

Mean time, pour some olive oil, white balsamic and sea salt over the tomatoes, cut-side up. Leave them to marinate while the spaghetti cooks. Now pour a bit of boiling water over the peas, in a small bowl, and cover.

When the spaghetti is cooked (always al dente) drain it but leave it a bit wet, if you know what I mean – so it doesn’t clump. Then throw in the tomatoes, a few glugs of olive oil and splashes of white balsamic. Scatter in some sea salt too.

Turn it into a serving dish and arrange the avocado slices all over the top then add the peas here and there. Now besprinkle 🙂 it with course black pepper and finish with fresh basil.

OMG, so good.
