Prawn Pasta

Simple but delicious – Prawn Pasta

One of our favourite pastas is linguine and when you combine it with ripe roasted tomatoes, fresh prawns, a pinch or two of chilli flakes and garlic on cold winters night at home or when you need to impress with your coulinary skills – it hits the spot.

So here’s the recipe. All you need to make life better at this point is a glass of your favourite tipple – one of our favourites with this is – Primo Estate D’Elena Pinot Grigio.

This recipe makes two generous serves.

You’ll need:

  • 250 gm of linguine (quality dried pasta like De Cecco or top of the range – Martelli)
  • 2 packets of vine ripened cherry truss tomatoes (very ripe – about 400 gm)
  • 16 – 20 green prawns depending on size (cleaned with tails on)
  • 1 tsp dried chilli flakes (peperoncino – from your local deli)
  • 3 cloves of garlic (chopped fine-ish)
  • 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (we love Joseph First Run Olive Oil by Primo Estate)
  • Pepper and salt to highlight flavours.

Cherry Tomatoes Prawn Pasta Recipe

Preparation is simple:

In a baking tray, place tomatoes (still on their stalks) with 2 tbs of olive oil, salt and cracked black pepper over tomatoes. Bake at 200 degrees celsius for 20 minutes or until skins are blistered with a little colour, and they’ve softened – let cool.

In the meantime, bring a large pot with lots of water to a full boil, add a good shake of cooking salt, then add pasta to full boiling water, stir pasta around the water a few times and cook to instructions on the packet, stirring every couple of minutes.

Pasta with Prawns and Cherry Tomatoes

In a large frying pan on very low heat, add 2 tbsps of oil, garlic and chilli flakes. Cook gently until garlic is translucent and soft, with no colour and chilli is fragrant (4 to 5 minutes – don’t burn or colour the garlic).

Then add your prawns and roasted tomatoes (which you’ve removed from stalks) with juices from baking tray.

Stir all together until prawn tails become a soft pale pink (2 to 3 minutes).

Almost done – Voilà!

Drain pasta and add to frying pan to all the other ingredients, stir around to coat pasta in the juices/ garlic/ chilli and tomatoes. Transfer to warmed serving bowl – at this stage sprinkle with a little extra virgin olive oil and enjoy!
Do not forget to grab a glass of your favourite wine 😉
