Recipe: Garlic Prawn Pasta

This is hands down the easiest, quickest and tastiest pasta. It’s creamy without cream and the prawns provide an awesomely delicious source of protein.

For two, you’ll need:

  • 2 cloves of garlic – super finely chopped
  • half a medium onion – finely chopped
  • 200g of the sweetest tomatoes you can find, I love the mini long ones from Lidl, they are like sweets – finely chopped
  • 300g prawns, peeled – mine were frozen
  • 250g of pasta – for this I find linguine works best as they have some great sauce absorbing potential
  • coriander – finely chopped, but not until the very last moment
  1. Boil a kettle and cook pasta according to packet instructions.
  2. Fry the onions in a little olive oil and garlic, then add the tomatoes, then, when soft –  the garlic. Then, only for a very short moment, the prawns – take care not to overcook them, otherwise they will become rubbery.
  3. Then DO NOT drain the paste, but scoop it into the pan with the prawns, that way, some of the pasta liquid will make for a lovely, creamy sauce. At the very last moment, add in the coriander and you’re done!
