Pappardelle with basil pesto and avocado

Delicious and nutritious

Everyone likes pappardelle so it is a sure choice for the family. They can also be colored and made with vegetable pulp. We choose the traditional ones because it goes more well with the pesto, which is special.

In the normal pesto we use only basil, but we also add the very nutritious avocado and instead of the classic pine nuts we prefer the almonds. For cheese instead of parmesan we use a very Greek kefalograviera cheese.
