Vegan Avocado Pesto Pasta Recipe
2 servings | 9 Weight Watchers PointsPlus per serving

Ingredients:

  • 2 servings egg-less pasta – I used Fettuccine Nests (they are easy to portion)
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1 cup packed fresh basil leaves
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 zucchini
  • 2 large carrots
  • salt/pepper to taste

Instructions:

  1. Using a vegetable peeler, peel the zucchini and carrots into thin “fettuccine”-like slices.
  2. Cook pasta according to instructions; when you have 1 minute left, throw the sliced zucchini and carrots into the pot, then drain.
  3. Place avocado, juice from half lemon, garlic cloves and basil into small food processor. Blend until smooth.
  4. Add salt/pepper to taste.

This recipe yields about 3 Tbsp of the pesto per serving. I like to portion this on top of the pasta before mixing.
