"Pesto Pasta is a household staple and a great quick go-to lunch or dinner. This homemade pesto is vegan and the pasta is gluten free. The avocado replaces parmesan to make a dairy free alternative and adds a healthy dose of essential fatty acids. You can add a variety of colourful vegetables such as aubergine, sun dried tomatoes or kale to increase your vegetable intake. I like to serve mine with a side of green leafy salad and a classic French vinaigrette!"
