Even though it tastes creamy, there is no butter or cream in this recipe. Due to the avocados, it’s actually packed full of antioxidants.

The key is to get ripe avocados, meaning they give a little like a ripe peach when you press with your finger. Usually the skin will be darkening without having turned completely black.

HOW TO MAKE AVOCADO PASTA

To make avocado pasta, start by putting your spaghetti into salted boiling water. If you want to be extra-healthy, you can use whole wheat pasta. In the meantime, make the sauce by combining the ingredients in a food processor.

Put the avocado, basil leaves, garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper into a food processor or blender. Blend until almost smooth, and then dribble in the olive oil to make a light emulsion.
