Chilli Garlic and Prawn Spaghetti

April 20, 2010

I have an 'Italian' girl living in my house... who loves nothing but her pasta...  in any shapes & sizes  and tastes...She can have pasta for breakfast, lunch and dinner... She learned how to whip up a quick meal using spaghetti, tomato sauce and tasty cheese ...
I enjoy my pasta... but I need varieties ...can't have the tomato base sauce all the time... 
This garlic, chilli and prawn spaghetti, is simple yet refreshing. A meal everyone can enjoy... I can have mine with chillies...and my little Italian girl aka Miss E.. can enjoy her spaghetti... minus the chilli of course!!. Its a win-win situation for us.
  • 3 cloves of garlic - chopped
  • 2 chilli - chopped (optional)
  • 400g dried spaghetti
  • 500g cooked prawn - deveined and leave tail intact
  • olive oil
Cooked spaghetti according to the packet. Drained and reserve about a bowl of the 'pasta' water.
Saute the garlic and chilli in a 3 tablespoon of olive oil until fragrant. Stir in the spaghetti with the reserve water. Give a quick toss around the pot or frying pan. And add in prawn, and give it another quick toss.... season with salt and pepper.
