Avocado Pasta Pesto Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1 large avocado
  • 1-4 cloves garlic (raw or roasted)
  • 500g tortellini
  • 1/2 cup raw walnuts
  • 2 lemons, juiced + pinch of zest
  • big handful of greens (basil or other leafy greens like kale, arugula, spinach, parsley)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • topping: nutritional yeast, red pepper flakes, greens garnish

Directions:

  1. Boil water and add tortellinis. Cook until tender. Drain pasta.
  2. Add all sauce ingredients to a blender and blend on high until silky smooth.
  3. Pour as much sauce as you’d like over top the pasta – start with a small amount and add more until it is creamy to your preferences. Toss well. Make sure the pasta is still very warm/hot when you add the sauce so that the pasta warms the sauce.
