This is NOTHING more than boiling pasta and tossing it with a sauce made straight from your food processor. That means you can have a homemade meal without any effort. The key ingredients to the sauce are avocado and basil. The avocados give the sauce the rich and buttery consistency giving us that creamy sauce we all crave – think Alfredo. The pesto is there strictly for flavor.
