15 Minute Creamy Avacado Pasta


Yield: Serves 2

Ingredients:

·    1 medium sized ripe Avocado, pitted

·    1/2 lemon, juiced + lemon zest to garnish

·    2-3 garlic cloves, to taste (I used 3 and it was quite garlicky, but if you are not a big fan of garlic use 1 clove)

·    1/2 tsp kosher salt, or to taste

·    ~1/4 cup Fresh Basil, (probably optional, I used 2 Tablespoons dried)

·    2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

·    2 servings/6 oz of your choice of pasta

·    Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Directions:

1. Bring several cups of water to a boil in a medium sized pot. Add in your pasta, reduce heat to medium, and cook until Al Dente, about 8-10 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, make the sauce by placing the garlic cloves, lemon juice, and olive oil into a food processor. Process until smooth. Now add in the pitted avocado, basil, and salt. Process until smooth and creamy.

3. When pasta is done cooking, drain and rinse in a strainer and place pasta into a large bowl. Pour on sauce and toss until fully combined. Garnish with lemon zest and black pepper. Serve immediately. Makes 2 servings.
