Mid-way through the week and we are treating ourselves to this cosy, delicious and super healthy pesto pasta!
The creaminess comes from the avocado and gives the sauce such a great texture that we can assure you will L-O-V-E!
For 1 person
For the sauce
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 squeezed lemon juice
15 cl milk
Handful fresh basil leaves
Handful pine nuts (about 15g)
1 garlic clove
Salt and pepper
For the pasta
85g cooked wholewheat pasta
In a food processor, combine all the ingredients for the sauce. You can also add about 30g parmesan for extra taste.
Cook your pasta according to instructions. Once ready just blend in your pesto sauce.
You can also cook plum tomatoes with pine nuts in garlic and 1 tbsp olive oil and add on top of your dish!
Super simple, 10 mins to make and delicious 😋.
Also note that the “normal” pesto contains so much olive oil/cheese and is therefore so high in calories, therefore this is a great and tasty alternative to your usual pesto sauce! Guilt-free :).
Until the next recipe,
