Avocado Pasta

What you need:
2 medium ripe avocados
1 Lemon juiced & zested

1 tablespoon lime juice
2 cloves garlic, peeled
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup fresh parsley leaves, chopped
sea salt & cracked black pepper
pasta of your choice, enough for 2 people
To Serve:
grated parmesan cheese
cracked black pepper

What to do:
Put a large pot of salted water on to boil.
Peel one of the avocados, and place this in a blender or food processor along with the garlic, oil, all but 2 teaspoons of lemon juice, half the lemon zest, lime juice salt and pepper.
Pulse until the sauce is very smooth and creamy.
Peel and dice the remaining avocado and toss with reserved 2 teaspoons of lemon juice to prevent browning.
Cook the pasta in the water until it is “al dente”.
Drain the pasta, reserving a small cup of the pasta water.
Return the pasta to the pot and toss with the parsley leaves and avocado sauce.
Add a few teaspoons of the reserved pasta water and toss well to ensure the pasta is well coated with the sauce.
Toss the remaining diced avocado into the pasta, and serve in pasta bowls topped with reserved lemon zest, cracked black pepper, and a sprinkling of parmesan cheese.
