This Basil Avocado Pasta has been my go to lunch recently. It’s so yummy and creamy. Plus it only takes 15 minutes in total to throw together.
It’s filling but not heavy and so satisfying! Bursting with flavour from the basil, lemon and garlic. Plus this Basil Avocado pasta sauce recipe is gluten free, dairy free, vegan and full of so much goodness.
