Creamy Lemon Basil Spaghetti Squash

This is another recipe that I have wanted to post for a while. I love pasta with red sauce but sometimes I really want a creamy and delicious pasta dish. Basically avocado is the most brilliant piece of fruit EVER! I really have no idea what I would do without it. I started making this creamy lemon basil sauce a couple months ago and basically put it on this that and everything. It totally satisfied my desire for creamy comfort food without feeling terrible after.
