Since I love creamy flavors I have always been adding loads of cream to pasta sauces. But I figured out you can get similar consistency from avocado and -. This pesto is prepared in 5 minutes and it won’t disappoint.


For 3 people; Very simple; 5 minutes


Ingredients

70 g pine-nuts
2 ripe avoados
30 g fresh basil; roughly chopped
3 tablespoons of olive oil
Salt

Extra: 300 g pasta

Instructions

  1. Cook the pasta as the instructions on the box say.
  2. Meanwhile roast the pine-nuts in a pan. It will take around 3 minutes.
  3. In a smaller food processor (hand blender might also work) blend the pine-nuts. Then add avocado, basil, olive oil and solt. Blend well.
  4. Mix pesto in cooked and drained pasta.

Wise-ass corner

I like to break the creaminess with some sour flavour – so I adde a spoonful of tomato sauce. Lemon juice fits well also.
For spiciness add some chilly.

Baby, this one is a keeper
