Just the picture made me make it! It was really nice and a change to a normal prawn dish! - 19 Jul 2015


This was lovely ! Very light and fresh so much flavour with very little ingredients. I added some chilli flakes to the prawns and tossed lemon juice through the pasta topped with parmigian cheese - 25 May 2015


The picture dove me right into making it! it is a light dish, and very satisfying for my little sister and me! I added parmigian cheese to it, and it tasted good. - 07 Mar 2016
