INGREDIENTS:

12 ounces spaghetti

2 avocados--halved, pitted and peeled

1 garlic clove, smashed

1 bunch scallions, roughly chopped

Juice of 1 lemon

¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

½ cup chopped parsley, for garnish


PREPARATION:

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the spaghetti and cook until al dente, 6 to 8 minutes.


While the pasta cooks, make the sauce: In the bowl of a food processor, pulse the avocados, garlic, scallions, lemon juice and olive oil until smooth.
