This is one of my favourite summertime pasta dishes, sweet prawns and sweet fresh peas make an amazing combination. Add to that the zing of fresh chilli and tang of fresh lemon and you have Italian summer on a plate 🙂
150g farfalle pasta
100g frozen peas, defrosted
juice of 1 lemon
150g raw peeled prawns
1 small red chilli, fine chopped
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
(1). Put large pan of water on to boil, once boiling add a good pinch of salt, let the water return back to the boil then add your pasta to cook.
(2). In a frying pan add a glug of olive oil then add the diced chilli and garlic a fry gently for about a minute, then add the prawns.
(3). Once the prawns begin to change colour, toss in the pan until the prawns become coated in the chilli and garlic, add the peas and cook until the prawns are cooked through.
(4). By now your pasta should be cooked so add to the prawns and add the lemon juice then toss together well to flavour the pasta with the oil, garlic and chilli.
