Avocado Pesto Pasta

Pesto Avocado Pasta

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 cups packed basil leaves
  • 3 cloves garlic (I love garlic)
  • 1/3 cup pine nuts (could roast them: optional)
  • 1 cup avocado oil
  • 1 whole avocado

DIRECTIONS:

Pulse basil, garlic and pine nuts in food processor until chopped. If I have time, I prefer to finely chop the ingredients myself because I think it is therapeutic and creates better flavor. Add avocado, and mix in. Slowly add avocado oil and blend until mixture is smooth (pesto consistency). Add salt and pepper to taste. Toss with your favorite pasta, add sundried tomatoes and sprinkle with toasted pine nuts.
