Spaghetti with Avocado Sauce

Spaghetti and Avocado Sauce
(6 servings)


12 oz. Spaghetti
2 large Avocados, halved, pitted and scooped out
1 large clove Fresh Garlic, smashed
6 Fresh Scallions, chopped
1 large Fresh Lemon, juiced
¼ cup Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
to taste Salt and Pepper
½ cup Fresh Parsley, chopped


Cook spaghetti according to package directions but one minute short on time.  While pasta is cooking, add the avocados, garlic, scallions, lemon juice and olive oil to a food processor.  Blend until smooth.  Reserve a half cup of pasta water and then drain pasta when done cooking.  Place pasta in a large warmed serving dish.  Add the pasta water to the avocado mixture in the food processor and blend until smooth.  Toss the avocado mixture with the pasta, season with salt and pepper, top with parsley and serve.

Note:               For a little different flavor, try using limes in place of the lemon.  It may take 2 or 3 limes to get the same amount of juice as one large lemon.
