Moorish, quick and easy to make, this fettuccini combines a zesty avocado sauce with chicken, bacon, tomato and olives. It tastes creamy, but without the cream is a healthier and delicious choice. It is also low FODMAP and gluten free. Serve for lunch or dinner. Enjoy.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Serves: 4

1 ripe avocado
1 lemon, finely zested and juiced
1 tbsp Dijon or wholegrain mustard
Salt and pepper
Water and salt, to cook the fettuccini
1 packet fettuccini (gluten free if required)
1 tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic, crushed (exclude if low FODMAP)
3 chicken breasts, cut into 2cm cubes
3 rashes of bacon, rind removed and sliced into strips
1/3 cup kalamata olives, sliced
14 large cherry tomatoes, cut into quarters
2 cups grated cheese (lactose free if required), to serve

  • Blend the avocado, mustard, lemon zest and juice until smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste, stir to combine. Set aside.
  • Bring a saucepan of salted water to the boil. Add the fettuccine to the saucepan and cook for 1 minute less than the packet instructions. Drain the fettuccini, reserving 1/4 cup of the salted water, and set aside.

  • In the meantime, while the pasta is cooking, turn the frypan on high, add the olive oil and garlic and sauté for 1 minute until fragrant and golden.
  • Add the bacon and fry until caramelised. Add the cubed chicken and cook until the pieces have just turned white.
