This is truly fuss-free cooking at its best. The only thing you need to cook here is the pasta. The sauce is non-cooking and made from only 3 main ingredients – avocado, olive oil and garlic. Not only can you whip this up in 15 minutes, it is healthy and vegan as well. Of course, you can always dress up the pasta with other ingredients such as prawns for a more varied taste, but I am satisfied with this plain version just as much. This is also a wonderful recipe for using up the odd leftover avocado.

There is no ingredient quite in this world like avocado which is creamy and fatty on its own, making it a perfect choice for a quick and indulgent creamy pasta. It is truly indulgent.
