Avocado Basil Pasta

This is a creamy tasty vegetarian dish that is simple and delicious.

This comes together really quick and is a perfect lunch recipe.  

If I have an avocado that needs to be used up, this is my go-to recipe. I've made it several times and seem to love it more every time. 

Creamy Avocado Pasta
Adapted from Prevention RD

1 medium ripe avocado, pitted
1/2 lemon, juiced
2-3 garlic cloves, to taste
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 cup fresh basil
2 tbsp. olive oil
6 oz. pasta of choice, I used rotini

Cook pasta according to directions. Don't overcook. 

Make the sauce by putting the garlic, lemon juice and olive oil into a food processor.  Process until smooth.  Add the avocado, basil and salt.  Process until smooth and creamy. 

Pour sauce onto drained pasta and toss until fully combined.
