Pretty random, but it actually tasted DELICIOUS! haha
For the recipe,
- 1 large fresh avocado
- handful (cup) fresh basil
- handful (cup) peanuts
- 2 cloves garlic
- handful (cup) parmesan cheese
- 1/4 cup EVOO
- 4 strips of bacon diced
- spaghetti pasta
- 3 roma tomatoes chopped
*optional: this will also taste delicious with sun-dried tomatoes! :)
Cook pasta (use instructions on the box)...set aside a cup of pasta water
To make pesto: Combine basil, avocado, garlic, parmesan cheese into food processor. Pulse adding EVOO slowly until creamy consistency is formed. Set aside.
In a deep skillet or sauce pan, cook bacon until crispy. Separate onto a paper towel. Take out any excess oil from the pan. Cook tomatoes until tender. Set aside.
Add pesto to cooked pasta make sure to coat all the pasta. Add tomatoes and top with the bacon. If pasta is a little dry. Add more EVOO and pasta water.
