    Altered ingredient amounts. This was quite a good base, but I modified it a bit. I used only 1 can of tomatoes, doubled the garlic and wine (so I simmered it a little while longer - uncovered - to boil off some liquid. About 20 minutes all together). I also added basil and crushed red capsicumwhile sauteing the onion and garlic... this added to the flavour a lot. Very easy to make and really delicious. I will definitely make it again. Thanks for the recipe!  -  29 Sep 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. This recipe was easy and tasty. I've made it several times now. The last few times I have added more spices (salt, pepper, italian seasonings, basil). I have also used pre-cooked prawn that were thawed and just thrown them in for a minute or two at the end...much easier. I was also generous with the wine. At first I worried about what wine to use, but now I just dump in whatever I've got going and it turns out great every time.  -  29 Sep 2008


    This was amazing!!! My partner and young son loved it, and it will now be a sure thing when prawns are on special! I added more wine though and a few extra cloves of garlic...because we are garlic eaters...but wow...we loved this  -  29 Dec 2010
