Creamy Avocado Pesto Pasta
Prep time
Total time
Recipe type: Main Course
  • 1 12oz box of spaghetti, cooked
  • 2 ripe avocados
  • ½ cup packed fresh basil leaves
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • ⅓ cup olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Black pepper
  1. Set cooked pasta aside.
  2. In a food processor fitted with a metal blade, combine avocados,basil, garlic and lemon juice. With the motor running, slowly add olive oil.
  3. Toss avocado pesto with pasta. I wouldn't recommend tossing the pesto into the pasta until right before it's served (the avocado in the pesto will turn brown if it sits for too long).
  4. Garnish with a bunch of basil if desired.
