last minute pasta if you have a lot of veggies lying around

doesn't require meat, but sauteed chicken is good

sautee whatever veg you have: onions, garlic, zucchini, peppers, mushrooms (or whatever you like)
optional: add some halved cherry tomatoes, or a can of fire-roasted tomatoes if you prefer, to the sauteed veg
if you want you can cook the tomtatoes down for 5 or 10 minutes so they release a bit more juice
turn off the heat, add a chopped avocado, and stir gently so that the avocado breaks down a little and the juices create a sort of sauce. (it works fine without the tomato)

Dump the veg/avocaddo mix into pot with the cooked, drained (still hot) pasta & stir

add half a bunch of spinach leaves, and mix in with the pasta til the spinach has wilted.
