    Serves: 6 

    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
    • 4 cups diced tomatoes
    • 1 cup (250ml) dry white wine
    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • 1 pinch salt and black pepper, to taste

    • 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Ready in:55min 

    1. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the garlic; cook 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes and wine. Bring to a simmer and cook 30 minutes; stirring frequently. Once the tomatoes have simmered into a sauce stir in the butter and season with salt and pepper.
    2. Fill a large saucepan with lightly-salted water; bring to a rolling boil; stir in the linguine and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through but is still firm to the bite; about 11 minutes. Drain well.
    3. Season the prawns with the Cajun seasoning, salt and pepper. Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large frypan over medium-high heat. Stir in the prawns and cook until pink on the outside and no longer translucent in the centre; about 5 minutes. Stir the prawns into the pasta sauce then stir the sauce into the linguine to serve.

    I authored this recipe but since it was written and 2 years later published I've made a few changes. I add about 1 cup of cream and about 3 tablespoons of fresh chopped basil at the end. This is so good for a quick and easy meal for company or just a quick and easy meal for your family! Update 12/5/09 - This originally called for 12 oz of angel hair pasta but AR changed it to 16 oz of linguine. Not sure why but you may want to change the amount of pasta to only 12oz.  -  12 Jul 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is an amazing recipe! I used a 28 oz can of petite diced tomatoes with the juice; I just had to cook it down slightly more; I also added 1/2 of an onion, chopped with the garlic and a few extra dashes of the cajun seasoning at the end. Served with fresh grated parmesan cheese - this recipe is amazingly yummy!!! Made it for my mother in law's birthday - whole family loved it!  -  14 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
