While the water boils, get your ingredients out… garlic, lemon juice, and zest of a lemon.
Add the 3 ingredients to the food processor and pulse until everything is blended and chopped.
Once the water boils, follow the directions on the back of the box and cook until al dente.
In the meantime, slice an avocado, remove the pit, and add it to the food processor. Grab a handful of basil as well.
Add the basil, avocado, extra virgin olive oil, salt, black pepper, and crushed red pepper.
Process all the ingredients until you get a smooth and creamy consistency, get the sides as well.
Drain the pasta and reserve some of the starchy pasta water. Add the avocado pesto to the pasta.
Toss well, and add the starchy pasta water, about 1/4 cup or a little more to thin out the sauce to your liking.
Optional, top with some parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.
