They go in salads, baby purees, tacos and pasta. Is there anything an avocado can’t do? For a new twist on this versatile fruit (yep, it’s technically not a vegetable) take a peek at this easy recipe that features a similar creamy texture to mac and cheese.

Good to know: The serving size for this recipe is only one so be sure to adjust accordingly for your family.

Ingredients:
1 medium sized ripe Avocado, pitted
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 garlic cloves
1/2 tsp kosher salt, or to taste
1/4 cup Fresh Basil, (I used 2 tsp dried basil because I didn’t have any fresh)
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 serving your favourite pasta

Method:
1. Cook your pasta according to the directions.

2. Meanwhile, make the sauce: place the garlic cloves, lemon juice, and olive oil into a food processor. Process until smooth. Now add in the pitted avocado, basil, and salt. Process until smooth and creamy.

3. When pasta is done cooking, drain and rinse in a strainer and place pasta into a large bowl. Pour on sauce and toss until fully combined. Serve immediately.
