This cooked in 15 minutes pasta dish is tasty, creamy and fresh. It’s also super easy to cook.

You make the sauce in one pan, cook pasta in the other one and just combine. Starchy water from cooked pasta is super important, so save it to add it to the dish at the end so you can make it moist and creamy.

Pasta dries out quickly so you need to serve it straight away. When it’s cold heat it up with the help of some more leftover water from pasta.
