Avocado Asparagus Pesto Pasta prepared by Rachel Pollard
Avocado is a great addition to a pasta to provide a creamy taste without cream. It’s much healthier and adds a great flavor to pesto!
1/2 cup spinach pesto
-Combine 1/2 cup spinach leaves with 1 clove garlic and 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil and puree
1/4 cup chopped asparagus, roasted
(at 500F for 10 minutes with a sprinkle of olive oil)
1.5 cups shell pasta, cooked
-1/8 cup reserved pasta water
salt and pepper to taste
-1/2 cup roasted chicken chopped
In a blender, combine pesto and avocado
In a bowl combine pasta and asparagus and chicken
Pour avocado mixture over pasta and stir
Sadly, this sauce needs to be thrown out after about 6 hours, so eat up!
