Vegan Green Goddess Avocado Pasta

This has to be one of my favourite pasta dishes on earth! Brimming with flavour from fresh garlic, mounds of fresh basil, lemon juice and zest in a base of healthy avocados all from Nature’s Fare Markets, this vegan avocado pasta sauce is velvety rich without the guilt.
