The creaminess comes from the avocado and gives the sauce such a great texture that we can assure you will L-O-V-E!

Ingredients

For 1 person

For the sauce

1/2 avocado

1 tbsp olive oil

1/2 squeezed lemon juice

15 cl milk

Handful spinach

Handful fresh basil leaves

Handful pine nuts (about 15g)

1 garlic clove

Salt and pepper

For the pasta

85g cooked wholewheat pasta

Method

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 :).
