Delicious Tomato Pasta Sauce with Prawns, Basil and Garlic
You will need (feeds 2/3):
1 can chopped tomatoes
20 king prawns (uncooked, frozen but thawed in warm water)
2 chopped tomatoes (for extra yumminess)
10 fresh basil leaves (chopped small)
4 chopped or crushed garlic cloves
3 chopped spring onions
2 tsp brown sugar
a dash of white wine
a pinch of chilli flakes
1 tsp dried or fresh thyme
2 tsp tomato puree
enough spaghetti or pasta for 2 people and parmesan to grate on top
1. Fry the fresh tomatoes, garlic and spring onions in a little oil for a few minutes. Meanwhile put a pan of boiling water on for the pasta.
2. Then add everything else for the sauce apart from the prawns.
3. Simmer on a medium/low heat for 10 minutes so that the tomatoes soak up all the goodness.
4. Finally add the prawns and cook until pink. Your pasta should be ready as the same time as the sauce so nothing will get cold. Grate some cheese on the top and garnish with a few basil leaves.
