Sometimes I will quite spontaneously research a recipe to fulfil a particular craving that will suddenly hit me. One slightly hungover Saturday I could not stop thinking about a creamy, yummy prawn pasta but also was in no mood to make a mess in the kitchen or spend hours prepping.

Thank god then that I stumbled across this super easy yet very delicious recipe which you'll have plated up and ready to eat in less than 15 minutes! 

Using two pots max and with a tiny bit of chopping and a hint of stirring, you will end up with a wonderful bowl of pasta, literally MADE to be eaten on the sofa, in pjs, binge watching a new tv show of your choice. Not a very rock n roll Saturday night but hey, one we all need once in a while!


  • 300g raw king prawns
  • 450g tagliatelle
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1tsp dried chilli flakes
  • 1/2 medium-sized whitw onion, sliced
  • 1 medium-sized tomato diced
  • 1/2 cup passata
  • 1 cup double cream

  • Salt to taste
  • Chopped parsley for garnish

  • Season the prawns with salt and pepper to taste. 
  • Set aside. 
  • In a large pot of boiling salted water, add pasta and cook about 1 minute less than the recommended time. Drain and set aside.

  • Enjoy!
