Happy Valentine's Day!

I wish you love today!!

I even found a vintage veggie Valentine's card...

Many of you may be headed out to an evening on the town. But, I bet some of you are dining in. I found this recipe that looks so good and will take advantage of all the fresh avocadoes that I see on sale in every grocery. looks so pretty with that glass of organic red wine and a few fair-traded roses! Have a great day...may love fill your life today and every day. xoxoxo

Avocado Pesto

1 pound dried linguini
1 bunch basil leaves (about 2½ ounces)
½ cup pine nuts
2 ripe avocados, pitted and peeled
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (about ½ of a lemon)
3 cloves garlic
½ cup olive oil
Sea salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper to taste
¼ cup chopped sun dried tomatoes (optional)

In a large pot, bring water to a boil. Add pasta and cook to package directions. While pasta cooks, in a food processor, blend basil, pine nuts, avocados, lemon juice, garlic, and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Drain pasta. In a large serving bowl, toss pesto with hot, freshly cooked pasta and garnish each serving with a basil leaf. For an extra touch of color and flavor, top pasta with sundried tomatoes. Serves 4-6.
