Recipe tried out on Sept 2011.
I had 6 avocadoes that I know not what to do with it. One afternoon, I saw this recipe and I told myself to go buy some sweet basil on the next grocery trip.
I made this one afternoon, kept the other half of avocado cream for another meal. Creamy and Delicious!
Creamy Avocado Pesto Pasta
Recipe source: Dinners Dishes and Desserts
150gm pasta of choice
1 avocado (I used 1 Hass)
25gm sweet basil (1/2 pack of sold in supermarkets), take the leaves only
1 clove garlic
1 tsp salt (use less if you intend to finish this up yourself, but I’m dressing enough pasta for 2)
1 Tbsp lemon/lime juice
Pepper to taste
*you can add some olive oil, but I didn’t.
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 (I used the mill attachment with my stand blender).
3. When pasta is done and drained, mix the avocado cream and toss well. Add some pasta cooking water if it's too dry. Or milk if preferred. Sprinkle with more pepper if you like
Let's take a slurp...............
