Avocado pesto sauce


The above picture is pasta with avocado pesto sauce.  I had a pampered chef demo and we made this-it was sensational!  You will need:

1 avocado
1 lemon
basil if you want it
3 pieces of garlic
2tbsp of olive oil
pasta of your choice (I use Trader Joe's brown rice penne pasta)

Peel the avocado and place in a food processor, add almost one whole lemon, add a few leaves of basil, the garlic and the olive oil and blend.  If the mixture is too thick, add a little water.  Pour on top of the pasta and mix.  The avocado makes it thick but very rich and delicious.  This is a good alternative to traditional pesto sauce.  If you don't have basil, you can also use spinach.
  Mangia mangia!!
