Avocado and basil pesto tagliatelle with pine nuts and walnuts
I recently asked on my Facebook page what kind of recipes you would all like to see more of, and popular response was “pasta”. At the same time, I’ve been getting requests from my vegetarian friends to help them find some dishes that don’t require meat or fish. So today’s recipe is created to suit everyone’s needs: it’s a pasta side dish that uses no meat or fish at all and is completely vegetarian. You can easily make it vegan by using vegan cheese as well. I’ve provided some tips below on what you can serve along with this recipe and it includes options for vegetarians, meat lovers and fish fans.
You can eat this dish just like this, but I would recommend using it as a side dish and serving it with one of these options below.
Veggies: Don’t feel like eating fish or meat today? Serve this dish with some delicious pan fried mushrooms or zucchini and grilled cherry tomatoes!
Meat: Chicken is definitely your best option!
Fish: Any white fish will go well with this, or prawns.
