A quick and very simple creamy pasta sauce that’s also healthy!

Ingredients (serves 1)

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1/2 freshly squeezed lemon
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp semi dried basil leaves (feel free to use fresh if on hand)
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1 cup rice pasta (or any pasta of your choice)


  1. Boil a pot of water and cook pasta per directions.
  2. For the sauce; Add in your avocado, olive oil, garlic, basil, lemon juice & salt and pepper to taste into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth and creamy!
  3. Serve your pasta into a bowl then pour your sauce over top and stir through.

Notes... Add more olive oil or lemon juice to make the sauce your preferred consistency!
  • Great recipe quick ways and very tasty


  • Thank you for a great quick and easy meal idea xx


  • Sounds quick & easy. I bought some what must be end of season basil this morning so I guess this is what we’ll be having for dinner :)


  • looks so fresh and vibrant


  • Simple and easy thanks for sharing


  • Looks wonderful. Love pesto pasta, added avocado would be a nice twist.


  • I’m not a mad fan of basil, but I love the sound of this dish. I wonder if you could recommend a different herb that I could use in place of the basil?

    • You could use dill or leave it out all together would still be nice!


  • I love basil and pasta, never thought of adding avocado to it. Will definitely be trying this new addition :)


  • This looks fresh and healthy! I will be trying this for meat free monday…thanks.
