Spaghetti with avocado pesto

Today I show you my recipe for Avocadopesto on spaghetti. Avocados are great. We used to buy them only for Gucamole, but right now we almost always have one in store because our little boy totally loves avocado toast. And who could blame him, after all, avocados are so healthy. Such a superfood. But actually the taste is most important to me. Did you know that avocado fits great with pasta? It is definitely something different than basil pesto or wild garlic pesto that you can find here on the blog. Tastes very different too. The special whistle gives the parsleyand the grated Parmesan. During pregnancy, I was not allowed to eat Parmesan, so we simply replaced it with grated Emmentaler. Also delicious. As a culmination for all non-vegetarians, there’s still crispy bacon on top. Even if you omit it you should not even save on garlic. It adds a light spiciness to the dish so fresh and goes well with the fresh lemon aromas. The last time I had a fresh organic lemon at home and directly grated the shell and not just used the juice. Tasty…
