I often find that I have a few tomatoes and an avocado or two that are ripening faster that I can come up with a plan to use them. I will toss them together and add a splash of oil and vinegar and anything else I have at hand.
Think Capresse Salad with Avocado instead of cheese. The pasta was a last minute afterthought to turn the salad into a more substantial lunch. It worked!
