For the pesto, roast sunflower seeds/pine nuts over low-medium heat until slightly toasted. Add all pesto ingredients, including slightly toasted sunflower seeds/pine nuts, into a food processor and process for a few seconds until combined. Transfer into an airtight jar and fill up with extra avocado or olive oil. Store in fridge for up to 2 weeks.
In a large pot of boiling water, cook pasta according to the instructions. While the pasta is cooking, add 2-3 tbsp of pesto with coconut milk in a large saucepan and heat over low-medium heat. Once the pasta is done, drain and mix into the pesto sauce until pasta has taken on the pesto flavor. Add salt, pepper and fresh parsley if needed.
