Ingredients

  • 1 medium sized ripe Avocado, pitted
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced + lemon zest to garnish
  • 2 garlic cloves, to taste (Use one for a milder flavor, three if you love garlic)
  • 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 servings of your choice of pasta (I used whole wheat)
  • Parmesan cheese (garnish, optional)

Cook spaghetti according to the directions on the package. Meanwhile, place the garlic, lemon juice, and olive oil into a food processor. and blend until smooth. Next, add the avocado, basil, and salt and process until the mixture has a smooth and creamy consistency. Some of the basil pieces might not be completely blended – that’s fine. Toss pasta with sauce and garnish with extra basil and Parmesan cheese.
