If you prefer a thicker pasta sauce, consider using thickened cream or adding cornflour. The sauce is otherwise quite thin, but intended this way and will thicken once combined with pasta. (It will thicken more if left to rest in a thermoserver prior to serving

If desired, add a squeeze of lemon to the sauce as its cooking for an extra citrus kick or once served.

You could also BBQ the prawns for that charred flavour and add to the pasta at the end.

  • Very tasty thank you. I've actually never cooked...

    Very tasty thank you. I've actually never cooked raw prawns before. I made a couple of changes and might make a couple more next time. I used lactose free light thickened cream as it was all I had on hand. Also added a little cornflour at the end for a little bit of thickening and half a chilli in the garlic step. Also only did 400g of pasta and that's the size of the packet I used. Next time I think I might add some more zucchini as that was delicious here. Also might add a little bit of spinach right at the end too. Seriously delicious though and went down a treat in this house.

    Winner winner in this family. Cooked the pasta on the stove to speed up process. Also did 5 cloves of garlic and added some corn flour to thicken sauce. My prawns were frozen so cooked sauce for 20mins then cooked prawns for 10mins.

    Easy...tasty and a winner! Thanks for sharing.
