Prawn Linguine

Updated: Feb 3, 2021

Simple, quick to prepare and cooks in 5 minutes. Perfect for those busy days when you crave a filling, fast bowl of Pasta.

I adore Pasta, I could eat it every day, and I do make my own occasionally. Even shop bought fresh pasta is a real game changer, it just seems more velvety, tasty and cooks in a fraction of the time too.

None of the ingredients needs much cooking, just a quick warm- up.

BEB Tip Leave about half the cherry Tomatoes whole for a small explosion of flavour and extra juice as you bite into them.

Fresh Chilli is often used in this type of recipe, but as I am a lightweight when it comes to spicy food I have used lovely fresh Ginger bite, mild heat and freshness. If you like it hot, feel free to add Chilli instead, or both?
