3 Greens Pesto Pasta

Pesto is one of my all time favorites and when you combine it with pasta it's literally heaven on a plate. 

Since starting a plant based life style I feel like there aren't many pesto options without dairy (all that cheese) on the market. This is why I wanted to try make my own. I must say I pretty much nailed it with this 3 greens pesto that I'm about to share with you.

Today's tip: Thank you nutritional yeast for being such a great substitute for grated cheese. There's no need to add any parmesan cheese to your blend when you can add something so nutritional yet tasty. Nutritional yeast is a great source of B12 for us vegans - incase you didn't know.
