  • Mix onion, tomato, olives, orange/yellow peppers, salt, black pepper, Italian seasoning with olive oil. 
  • Spread evenly on parchment paper and roast for 30 minutes at 400F
  • Mash avocados thoroughly with little salt and lemon juice
  • Add cooked pasta and gently mix with hands until evenly coated with avocado
  • Add in the roasted vegetables (along with excess oil if any) and adjust spices to taste; garnish with cilantro
You can use bowties, rotini or spaghetti pasta for this dish. Shells, macaroni etc will not mix well with avocado. For the vegetables to roast evenly, use a wide and shallow dish rather than a narrow & deep one.
