I was never a big fan of pesto. There was always something missing whenever I would try one. My hubby, on the other hand, is a huge fan of pesto and is always asking me to make it for his spaghetti. One day in the middle of making my usual pesto recipe my oldest thought it would be funny to add avocado and blend it together while I was in the bathroom.
He of course only told me he had blended everything I already had in the blender to help me out. The result was the creamiest and the best tasting pesto I have ever tried. Best of all, it’s quick and easy to make!
So this is his recipe for a delicious sauce that we hope you enjoy as much as we do!
