Serves: 4 

  • 250g angel hair pasta
  • 1/4 cup olive oil, divided
  • 1 teaspoon chopped garlic
  • 500g large prawns - peeled and deveined
  • 2 (800g) tins diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) dry white wine
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 3 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:35min 

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add 1 tablespoon oil. Cook pasta in boiling water until al dente. Place pasta in a colander and give it a quick rinse with cold water.
  2. Heat remaining olive oil in a frypan over medium heat. Cook garlic, stirring constantly, until the garlic is tender, about 1 minute. Do not let the garlic burn. Add prawns and cook for 3 to 5 minutes. Remove prawns from the frypan and set aside.
  3. Stir tomatoes, wine, parsley and basil into the frypan. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally until liquid is reduced by half, 8 to 12 minutes. Add prawns and continue cooking until the prawns are heated through, about 2 to 3 minutes. Serve the prawns mixture over the pasta. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
