Noodles with Avocado Pesto & Shrimps

Noodles con Pesto di Avocado e Gamberettiin italiano

You all know by now how much I enjoy developing my recipes, and I often get compliments for what I make, but this time, before anyone else does it, I’m about to compliment myself for this recipe.

Oh My, I really loved it. So creamy and full of flavours!

Pesto sauces usually calls for pinenuts, I had no pinenuts in my pantry, so I thought…hazelnuts, why not.

Good pick Ellie, really great idea! Hazelnuts go nicely with avocado in this recipe.

Ready to check if I did a good job?
