Prawn, garlic and chilli Fettucine!

(Serves 4)

This is one of my favourites to cook for a dinner party…..And the best bit is that it only takes 10 mins to cook!! (Not my own recipe, but out of my oldest Italian Cookbook!)

Ingredients:

  • 400g Fettucine
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large, peeled, chopped red onion
  • 4 peeled, finely chopped cloves of garlic
  • 2 finely chopped long red chillies
  • 16 large green (raw) king prawns
  • a handful of coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley

Method:

Cook 400g Fettucine in plenty of lightly salted boiling water for about 8 minutes or until al dente. Drain.

Meanwhile, heat 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil in a large saucepan and cook 1 large, peeled, chopped red onion over low heat for 3-4 minutes or until soft. Add 4 peeled, finely chopped cloves of garlic and 2 finely chopped long red chillies and stir for 2 minutes.

Peel and de-vein 16 large green (raw) king prawns and add to onion mixture. Cook prawns 2-3 minutes on each side or until just coloured. Remove from heat. Add drained pasta to prawn mixture. Add a handful of coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley and season with salt flakes and cracked black pepper and stir.

To serve:

Serve in four warm pasta bowls and drizzle with a little extra virgin olive oil…….I love it with an Italian Crusty loaf of bread and a good red wine……..Enjoy!!
