Enjoy two great recipes in one, Avocado Pesto, and a wonderful pasta featuring it as the sauce. Avocado pesto is luscious. With low oil content compared to many pesto versions, it is incredibly creamy without one drop of cream. It remains thick and emulsified without separating so you can store it in your refrigerator for a few days. Avocado pesto is an excellent source of potassium, magnesium, dietary fiber, and vitamins C and B6.
With special seasonings and fresh basil leaves, this pesto enhances juicy sauteed shrimp and ripe cherry tomatoes, two ingredients tasting even better paired with basil. Simply delectable.
