Creamy Avocado Pesto Pasta

Think I can have this pasta for a few days in a row! hahaha but better not as avocado is very rich, not so good for my waistline >.< I improvise the original recipe by adding some pine nuts & olive oil to the paste :D let's slurp!




Recipe adapted & modified from Table for 2 or More
Ingredient (2 servings)
  • 150gm pasta of choice
  • 1 avocado
  • 30gm sweet basil leaves
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp toasted pine nuts
  • pepper to taste
  • Parmesan cheese for garnish
Method
  1. Cook pasta according to packaging’s instructions.
  2. While you are cooking your pasta, prepare the avocado cream. Blitz everything else into a paste in a food processor
  3. When pasta is done and drained, mix the avocado cream and toss well. Add some pasta cooking water if it's too dry. Garnish with Parmesan cheese and serve.
