Avocado Basil Pesto Pasta, a delicious Vegetarian Pasta variety with the richness of Avocado and Basil. A very quick and easy to make Pasta. Other than cooking pasta, we don’t have to cook anything to prepare Pesto. This pasta would be a great party meal especially for kids. For my kids Birthday Parties, either I make Tomato-Basil Pasta or Simple Basil Pesto or enhance much more with Avocado.

Despite its creamy texture, an avocado is actually high in fiberwith approximately 6-7 grams per half fruit. Eating foods with natural fiber can help prevent constipation, maintain a healthy digestive tract, and lower the risk of colon cancer. Avocados are brimming with healthy fat, which takes the body longer to digest and help keep you full and satisfied (so you’re less likely to snack!). Further, avocados are nutrient-packed with over 20 vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients which is especially beneficial if you’re trying to cut calories and keep up with all the nutrition your body needs.

I usually make Guacamole with Avocado or a simple Avocado Salad regularly. Somehow my kids doesn’t like the creamy texture of the avocado. But since the avocados are very rich in multiple nutrients, I grind the avocado with basil and make this Avocado Pesto Pasta. The first time when I made, I didn’t explain the kids about avocado and they liked it very much, now I make it often. At least once a week, I make this pasta or Masala Pasta for their lunch box.
