This is a super easy avocado pesto pasta recipe that I experimented with the other day. I wanted a recipe to use up all the avocados that were getting way too ripe and I didn’t want to go to waste. I would have made guacamole if I had the right ingredients and weren’t lazy to go out and buy chips and other sh*t. Oh well. So, this recipe was born. Super easy and quick, you really only need to cook the pasta.
You will need:
Cherry tomatoes/ roma tomatoes / grape tomatoes or whatever you call small tomatoes. I cut mine in half and then sauteed them with salt and pepper. This is completely optional. I just like how sauteing tomatoes really changes the flavour of them.
Avocadoes: The number of avocados you need will depend on how many people you plan on feeding/ how many you want to get rid of before they go bad. Smash these in a bowl or process in a food processor to get a smoother consistency.
Some sort of Pasta: After you have cooked the pasta of your choice, mix the tomatoes and avocado with the pasta and add pesto. You can make your own or just buy store bought pesto. We’re going for easy, so store bought it is.
Then you just mix it all together and season with additional salt and pepper to taste. Done! Super simple but so good.
