This is a great recipe that is a bit healthier than regular alfredo. It still has the same creamy 'mouthfeel' and tastes delicious. I also like to use it with grilled veggies, fish, and chicken.
1 1/4 c Fresh basil, packed, chopped
2 ts Garlic, crushed
1 Ripe avocado, peeled, chopped
2 tb Olive oil
1/4 c Fresh Parmesan cheese
2 tb Toasted pine nuts
1 c Chicken stock or water
2 ts Lemon juice
Salt and fresh pepper to taste
1.In food processor or blender puree basil, garlic, avocado, oil, cheese, pine nuts, stock/water and lemon juice until smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add additional stock/water as needed to create desired consistency. Toss with al dente pasta, or use over fresh grilled vegetables, fish or chicken.
Be determined to live life with flair and laughter!
