This post is sponsored by Barilla. We teamed up to introduce you to their new line of one-ingredient legume pastas made from chickpeas or red lentils. If you love pasta, and you love getting the most nutrition out of every meal, then you’re going to love their new legume pastas, and this Creamy Avocado Pesto Pasta.
Avocado is easily one of my favorite foods. Obviously, I love its rich creamy texture and light flavor, but another thing I love about it is something that is too often overlooked: its versatility! Most of us only know avocado from having guacamole, or perhaps avocado toast if you’re a city-dwelling millennial. That’s really a shame because avocado can be used in so many ways, savory or sweet. And because avocados are so nutritious––high in vitamin E, A, C, K, B, potassium, magnesium, and healthy fats––there’s even more reason to enjoy them often.
