Easy peasy jazzed-up prawn tagliatelle


1x packet of tagliatelle

10x King prawns

1x jar of pasta sauce

1x Large handful of cherry tomatoes

2-3 x tablespoons of olive oil

1/2 an onion

1x teaspoon of salt

1/2 teaspoon of pepper

1x teaspoon of parsley

2 x teaspoon of dried oregano

10 x large basil leaves, finely chopped

3 x crushed garlic cloves or 1 x generous tablespoon of garlic paste

Step 1:

Pour the olive oil into the pan and place onto a low-medium heat. Add to the pan the onion, crushed garlic, basil, oregano, parsley, salt and pepper. Mix together and leave to simmer for 5 minutes. Once the mixture has started to form a small layer of liquid, add the prawns and cook until they are pink through, stirring regularly.

Step 2: 

Once the prawns are visibly pink through, add to the pan the sliced cherry tomatoes. Leave to simmer for 5 minutes before adding the pasta sauce. Alternatively, if you would like to create a more home-made version of this then simply add chopped tinned tomatoes! Leave the mixture to simmer for around 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Step 3: 

Boil a kettle and add to a large pot, place over the hob on high heat until it begins to boil. Simply add the pasta and a pitch of salt and reduce the heat to a medium simmer. Leave to cook for 5 minutes. Once

al dente, drain the excess water and serve up a generous portion! If you’d like to add a little something extra then try drizzling a small amount of olive oil onto the pasta before mixing together and serving up.

Step 4:

Add to the plate a large helping of the cooked prawns and sauce and voila!
