Cashew and Avocado Pesto Pasta

I adore pasta. Whatever type of pasta I will be served, it will be gone within a second. Pasta is one of my favourite dishes especially pesto pasta. however, this dish is different as it is made from scratch rather than buying pre-made pesto. It is very refreshing and zingy which is perfect for the summer. This pasta took about 20 minutes to make and is so simple that it has became a go to dish for me. the ingredients and instructions are:
