On Friday I made prawn linguine for my family. It actually turned out delicious (despite the fact that I almost burnt all the pasta for lack of a big enough pot!) and most people even had seconds! It's very healthy and suitable for dairy-free pescatarians like me! ;) The recipe is taken (slightly modified to cater for more people) from Marie Claire Real & Simple cookbook.
600g Linguine pasta
King Prawns (however many you like, I used 3 small packs)
375g organic cherry tomatoes (chopped in half)
5 cloves of garlic
2 handfuls flat leaf (Italian) parsley
18 leaves fresh basil
2 tablespoons chopped chives
150ml olive oil
Cook the linguine in salted boiling water.
Heat the oil in a pan and add the garlic. Next add the prawns and simmer for a few minutes. Add the cherry tomatoes and cook for about one minute. Put the pasta in a big bowl and add the prawns to it. Stir in the herbs, and squeeze in the juice of one lemon. Make sure everything is mixed evenly and serve!
(Serves 6 people)
Super easy, quick and healthy! It's my perfect meal to cook :) The day after we went to my mom's house and ate Spaghetti Aglio Olio e Peperoncino (spaghetti with garlic, olive oil and chili pepper)...hahaha! If I could I would eat pasta everyday. Seriously. I love it that much!
Let me know if you try this out!
