  • Step 1

    Bring a large pot of heavily salted water to a boil. Add linguine and cook according to package directions. Drain and set aside.

  • Step 2

    Meanwhile, make the pesto by combining basil, pine nuts, avocados, lemon juice, garlic, and oil in a food processor. Process until smooth. Season generously with salt and pepper.

  • Step 3

    Toss pasta with pesto. For an extra touch of color and flavor, top pasta with cherry or sun- dried tomatoes. Divide pasta among serving bowls and garnish each serving with a basil leaf.
