If you are just tired of eating pasta the regular way, this is a great recipe to try out. It usually doesn’t come with a sauce, but as thorough Nigerian, I couldn’t help myself, I added a little colour and lots of pepper to it.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons of fresh tomatoes/fresh pepper mix (blended)
  • Fresh parsley

Method

  1. Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water for about 10 to 15 minutes, check to see if it has softened (not soggy please) Drain and set aside.
  2. Heat 1 tbsp ofvegetable oil or butterin a large pan over medium heat. Add seasoned prawns, chopped garlic and stir-fry for 5–7 minutes until cooked.
  3. Add the blended fresh tomatoes/fresh pepper mix, remember you are adding just a little to give it a little colour that’s all.
  4. Add the pasta and lemon juice to the pan and stir with the prawns.
  5. Adjust seasoning if necessary,add a little fresh parsley to give it some appetising green colour.
