400g essential Waitrose linguine
2 essential Waitrose avocados

25g pack fresh flat-leaf parsley
100g pack fresh basil
1 red chilli, deseeded and roughly chopped
2 tbsp essential Waitrose olive oil

25g toasted pine nuts, to garnish
Make the avocado pesto just before serving to prevent any discolouration. If making for non-vegetarians add bacon pieces to the pasta.
