Creamy Avocado Pesto Pasta

  • 1 medium sized Avocado, pitted
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • 1-3 garlic cloves, to taste
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ¼ cup fresh basil
  • 2 tbsp cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 servings of your favorite pasta (I use quinoa pasta!)
  • fresh ground pepper

Place garlic, lemon juice, and olive oil in a food processor and process until smooth. Add the avocado, basil and salt and process until creamy and smooth.  After pasta is done cooking and has been drained, toss the pasta with the sauce and top with fresh ground pepper.
