Avocado Pesto Pasta Salad - Orgran

  • Prep Time: 10m
  • Cook Time: 9m
  • Total Time: 20m
  • Serves: 2



  • 1 package ORGRAN Quinoa Penne Pasta


  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 fresh parsley (flat leaf), small bunch
  • 1 fresh basil, small bunch
  • 1 lime, juice & zest
  • 1 small clove of garlic
  • almonds, toasted & roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • pinch salt & pepper
  • peas


  • Boil water in a medium size pot, add salt and the pasta. Cook for 8½ min total. Then drain and rinse with warm water.
  • In the meantime add the rest of the ingredients, except for the peas into a food processor and mix until you have a fairly smooth pesto. You still want some texture.
  • 1 minute before the pasta is ready, add the peas into the cooking water. Then drain it all together, rinse and let the water drain well.
  • Mix the pasta and peas with the pesto and serve at room temperature or cold.
