Today’s dinner is this spaghetti with no-oil Green Pesto. I love the regular basil pesto but hate the amount of olive oil I need to make it. So thought of making my pesto with avocados and spinach with absolutely no oil. And when you have smoked Salmon Fillet who doesn’t want to eat this for dinner.

Main Dish
  1. Boil the spaghetti with 1 drop of oil for 10 to 15 mins till al dente. Don't discard the pasta water

  3. Add the pesto to the spaghetti and toss it all together. Add some pasta water to make it little creamy. Season it with salt and pepper and some pine nut.
  4. Finish this with the cooked salmon on top. Serve this hot.
Recipe Notes

I absolutely love basil pesto, but I wanted to avoid extra oil and thus tried this different type of pesto. The avocado adds the creaminess to the pesto.
