I just love the lovely marriage of vibrant colours in this garlic prawn spaghetti recipe. The pop of red and green reminds me of spring and I like that is a much lighter dish compared to carbonara. It is so quick and easy to cook and you can have a meal ready in 15-20 minutes. Honestly, the longest wait is for the pasta to cook!

  3. Add the tomatoes and wine and simmer for a couple minutes.
  4. Add the prawns and butter. The prawns are added at a late stage since they are already cooked and we do not want to overcook it. If you are using raw prawns, add it in before the tomatoes and wine.prawn pasta 3
  5. Tip in the pasta and mix well. Squeeze in a bit of lemon juice to brighten up the flavours.
  6. Stir in the parsley and serve with a grating of parmesan cheese.
