Ingredients

  • 16 ounces spaghetti
  • 2 medium Avocados From Mexico, diced
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tb lemon juice
  • 1 tsp of lemon zest
  • kosher salt, black pepper, to taste
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

Instructions

  1. In a large pot of boiling water, cook pasta according to package instructions; drain well.
  2. To make the avocado sauce, combine ripe avocados, basil, garlic and lemon juice in the bowl of a food processor; season with salt and pepper, as desired. Slowly add olive oil to the food processor until well-combined.
