    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
