Tagliatelle in Avocado Sauce

I love such recipes - you have to put very minimal effort and yet the outcome is super delicious.  The sauce for the pasta, as you might have guessed, is made from avocados, blended in with some garlic, basil, lime and olive oil to form a rich and creamy sauce. 

Serves 2-3


200 gms Tagliatelle or any pasta of your choice
2 ripe Avocados, peeled and de-seeded
3 garlic cloves, crushed
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Juice of half a lime
1/4 tsp paprika or red chilli powder (optional)
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves
Handful of cherry tomatoes, halved
Salt and pepper for seasoning
Some dried parsley and Parmesan for garnish


Boil the pasta in some salted water for 10 minutes or as per packet instructions.

In a food processor, add the avocados, crushed garlic, lime juice, paprika and basil leaves. Season with salt and pepper. While the food processor is on, pour in the extra virgin olive oil. Blend until it all comes together.

Once the pasta is cooked, drain and put back in the pot on very low heat. Add the avocado sauce and toss gently. Throw in the cherry tomatoes and give it a final toss.

Garnish with some dried parsley and serve with some grated Parmesan.
