Adapted from Oh She Glows
By Erin at Dinners, Dishes and Desserts

1 large Avocado, pitted
1 lime, juiced +  zest to garnish
2 cloves garlic
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/4 cup Fresh Basil
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 servings/6 oz of your choice of pasta
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Cook your pasta according to the package directions.

To make the sauce place the garlic cloves, lime juice, and olive oil into a food processor. Process until smooth. Add in the avocado, basil, and salt. Process until smooth and creamy.

Pour sauce over pasta and toss until fully combined. Garnish with lime zest and black pepper. Enjoy!
Note: Because of the avocado this does not reheat well.
