Easy Avocado Pesto Pasta


A super quick and tasty dinner from Oh She Glows.

Serves 2.

1 large ripe avocado
3-4 tbsp of prepared pesto*
juice from half a lemon
salt and pepper
1 tbsp nutritional yeast

Whiz together in a food processor and toss with 4 oz of your favourite pasta, serve with Gardein Chicken Tenders and a simple green salad dressed with balsamic vinaigrette.

*I make very large batches of pesto, freeze it in ice cube trays, then transfer to ziploc bags – it’s already pretty easy and quick to make pesto, and making a large batch takes no longer than a small batch. A couple of spoonfuls of good homemade pesto can really liven up a meal when your cupboards are bare and you don’t really feel like cooking.
