  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, plus more for garnish
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

Cook the pasta in a pot of boiling, lightly-salted water, according to package directions. Meanwhile, combine garlic, basil, olive oil, lemon juice, and sea salt, and process in a food processor or high-speed blender. Add in avocado and blend until smooth.
