Gluten Free Artichoke Pecan Pesto Pasta Recipe
1/4 cup pecans or other nut to taste
1/2 cup artichoke hearts in water, drained
1 large bunch fresh basil
2 cloves garlic
2 tbsp good quality olive oil
1 tbsp wine vinegar
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Main Ingredients:
1/2 package Gluten Free Pasta of choice. I used Trader Joe’s Brown rice rotini.
1 small organic tomato, sliced or cut into chunks
1/4 Avocado, cubed (optional)
Toasted Nuts for garnish (optional)

Place all pesto ingredients in food processor and blend until creamy. Taste and adjust seasonings if desired.

Serve mixed into freshly made gluten free pasta (don’t forget to rinse and drain so it doesn’t get gummy). You may have extra pesto, which can be used later in another dish.

Very fresh, easy, and YUMMY!
