How do you upgrade your pesto? Add avocado because what does avocado taste bad with? Nothing, absolutely nothing. I used whole grain quinoa pasta and added chick peas for texture and creaminess. This meal is so so quick and and such a light pasta option. I love fresh basil and I am still holding on to summer flavors even though I’m transitioning into fall foods. Actually I’d make this in the winter too. Enjoy friends! 

Serves 4

1 package of whole grain quinoa pasta

1 can of garbanzo beans

For the pesto

Lots of fresh basil you can choose how much you want to use. I used an entire plant.. Lol.

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1 tbsp olive oil 

1/3 avocado

1/2 tsp pepper 

1/2 tsp- 1 tsp salt (1 is sort of a lot)

1 tbsp vegetable stock 

2 tbsp pine nuts toasted 

1 tbsp chopped onions 

Now this recipe is the definition of simple. Pour everything for the pesto into a food processor or nutri bullet and press pulse. The texture should be creamy. Pour it on top of your pasta and add the chick peas. Bon appetit!
