Yield: serves 4
Bring stock to the boil in a large saucepan and add the pasta. Cook at a low simmer uncovered about 10 minutes or until al dente. Drain. Place pasta into a large bowl and toss with 1 tablespoon of the oil.
In another bowl, while the pasta boils, mix the celery, avocado, garlic, and cilantro.
Make the dressing by combining all of the ingredients in a small bowl or tightly lidded jar. Whisk or shake until well combined. Toss with the celery/avocado mixture.
When the pasta has cooled, combine the vegetables with the pasta by stirring gently. Add the cheese and toss gently again. Add salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with the cilantro leaves. Serve this at room temperature.
