Basil Bacon Avocado Pasta

John and I absolutely loved this, and have made it countless times within the past few months.  It's great for a side to something like steak, or as a main dish with a warm crusty bread or something.  In fact, I might just make this for dinner tonight!!  

{What you need}  
12-16  ounces dried bow tie and/or wagon wheel pasta

3-4  medium avocados, halved, seeded, peeled, and coarsely chopped
10-12  slices bacon, crisp cooked, drained, and crumbled
4 tablespoons dried basil
4  tablespoons (two lemons) lemon juice 
2  tablespoon olive oil
3 teaspoons garlic powder
1/2  teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4  teaspoon salt
1  cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese

Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain. Meanwhile, in a large bowl combine the
avocados, bacon, basil, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, pepper, and salt. Add the hot pasta and
toss to combine. Transfer to a serving bowl. Sprinkle with cheese. Makes 8 servings.
