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

Directions

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.
