Avocado Pasta Sauce

Avocados are good, and pasta is good, so why not avocado pasta? This was really something different, I wouldn't have thought to combine the two. The idea for this comes from the blog Chocolate and Chillies.

-2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
-juice and zest of half a lemon
-2 garlic clove, minced
-1 medium avocado
-1/2 cup pasta water
-2 1/2 cups pasta
-salt and pepper

Cook pasta according to the package directions.
Combine all of the remaining ingredients, minus the pasta water.
I mixed mine in an attachment to my immersion blender.
This didn't really looked like it made a lot a first, but it was pretty
thick. Once I added the some water it was more
of a sauce consistency and was enough for a few servings.
Add a few spoonfuls to the pasta.

This really tasted like avocado, so if you really like avocado you'll probably like this, but if you aren't as sure about it the taste may be a bit overwhelming. It did taste a little bit like I was eating guacamole on my pasta. This was really easy to make though, the sauce was ready by the time the pasta was finished cooking. I also would recommend only making enough for you to eat at once (especially since it wasn't much work) because it definitely tasted better when I first made it than for lunch the next day.
