Fast, easy, simple and delicious - pasta with prawns.
350G dry linguine
2 cups of prawns, deveined and peeled
1/3c olive oil - divided
1/2c finely chopped parsley
1 tsp chili flakes
3 finely chopped garlic cloves
1 tbsp butter
Salt and pepper
In a large pot bring salted water to boil for the pasta. The water should be as salty as the sea. Place the pasta in the boiling water and stir right away until the water returns to boil. The water should remain at a gentle boil, cook the pasta as per the package instructions, about 8 minutes or so.
In the meantime, over medium high heat saute the prawns in about half of the olive oil until just pink, salt and pepper to taste. Lower heat and add the rest of the oil, butter, parsley and garlic.
Drain the pasta, toss in the prawns and sauce, serve.
Parmesan cheese can be added but often on fish dishes cheese is not used.
I have substituted mushrooms and asparagus for the prawns and it's just as delicious, however Parmesan cheese is a must.
