Zucchini Pasta with Avocado Lemon Basil Pesto

zucchiniPESTO2

Sauce:

1 ripe avocado
½ cup basil
1 Lemon, for juice
1 Tbs Oregano
Thyme
¼ cup Water (or more if needed)

Pasta:
3-4 Zucchini

Using Blender (Vitamix) blend together all ingredients.  Add more water if needed, until you get the consistency you desire.
For pasta you will need a Veggetti (this can be purchased at Bed, Bath and Beyond).
Simply stick one end of zucchini through the Veggetti and rotate creating long “noodles”. Boil water, throw in your noodles, and boil for 1 minute.  Remove from heat and rinse.  Drizzle sauce over your cooked zucchini pasta and enjoy!

If you’d like, you can add more veggies to the mix, such as sliced grape tomatoes.
