Avocado Pesto Pasta- Pasta tossed with a delicious and creamy avocado pesto sauce.
I love pesto and I love avocados but I would never have thought to put the two together! I was recently looking through the cookbook, The Fresh 20 when I came across this recipe. It intrigued me because I wasn’t sure how it’d taste. So I gave it a try and I was not disappointed!
It was so easy to make! Dinner was ready, start to finish is no more than 20 minutes. The avocado mixed into the pesto gave it a nice creamy texture that we all loved. We topped it with diced tomatoes. This is a new family favorite! Quick, easy and healthy. My kind of dinner!

I’ve never had pesto and avocado together. I’ll have to give it a try. And I love the natural green recipes. 🙂
This was my first time too! It’s really good!
We eat a lot of pesto made with spinach and my boys love it. I’ll have to try this, because we are big avocado fans in our house.
Spinach pesto sounds amazing!
Hmmm…I never would have thought of mixing avocado and pesto, either, but I’m sure it would be good! 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
