Pesto Alfredo is a spectacular mixture of two wonderful pasta flavours, Pesto and Alfredo. I remember the first time that my daughter and I decided we would try adding pesto to our Alfredo sauce… Wow, we had wondered why we hadn’t done it sooner πŸ™‚

Since my food allergies, I make this pasta dish mush more simply, by using coconut milk. This dish is ready in just fifteen minutes.

Pasta with Pesto Alfredo Sauce (Dairy Free/ Gluten Free/ Vegan)

3 c. dry gluten free pasta

1/2 c. basil pesto

1 1/3 c. coconut milk (I use 5% fat, but if you’d like it creamier use a higher fat content)

sea salt and pepper to taste

top with diced tomato and fresh basil

Cook pasta in salted water to al dente texture ( just before done) Drain and set aside.

In same pan, heat coconut milk and pesto. Add pasta back in and let cook for one minute.

  1. I’m going to give this a try. I’ve been experimenting with cauliflower and it’s tasty, but difficult to get nice and smooth. Thanks for linking up to Real Food Fridays πŸ™‚

    • I have used almond milk but I had to thicken it a little with tapioca starch, and I didn’t care for the flavour as much as the coconut milk. πŸ™‚

  2. Yum, yum, YUM! I need this pasta in my belly immediately! Thanks so much for linking it up to 5-Ingredient Mondays, I’m featuring it this week πŸ™‚ Hope to see you back this week!
