Creamy Avocado Pasta

I’m reaaaal lactose intolerant, but sometimes I really crave some sort of creamy sauce on my pasta.  This is a pretty good substitute!

  • 1 medium avocado, pitted
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced and zested
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • kosher salt to taste
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 servings of pasta of your choice (I used thin spaghetti)
  • ground pepper to taste
  1. Bring a pot of water to boil, and cook the pasta of your choice.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, put the garlic, lemon juice, and olive oil in a food processor.  Process until the ingredients are smooth, and then add in the avocado and salt.  Process until all ingredients are smooth.
  3. When the pasta is done, combine the pasta and sauce in a bowl.  Toss until combined.  Garnish with the lemon zest and black pepper.
  4. Enjoy! Duh, it’s avocado.
