A little bit of a different twist for pesto. This is actually quite low in fat and calories!!

I didn't like the taste of the pesto at first, but when a ton of parmesan cheese on it, it definitly grew on me by the end. I had to add an extra avocado because it was way too lemony and the cilatro was way too strong at first. Perhaps my avocado's were too small to start.
