Swirl your fork around this superfood pasta! We take pesto to another level by adding a scoop of chlorella powder to classic ingredients like basil and garlic. But that’s not all! Avocado adds creaminess, pistachios bring the nuttiness, and it’s all tossed with perfectly cooked spaghetti for a fast, satisfying main course you can enjoy any day of the week.

¼ cup water
½ teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon ground pepper
¼ cup nutritional yeast

Nutritional yeast, for serving
