Prawn arrabiata with angel hair pasta

Hot and fiery but quick and easy to make for a supper with a kick! I’m using fresh herbs as I’ve got some growing outside. But you can use dried herbs if you’ve got some in the cupboard.  Add a little fresh basil if you can though as it does impart a little something extra!

Shopping list

I’m using about 3-4 stalks each of fresh oregano and thyme. Strip the leaves off and add to the tomato sauce below. If you’re using dried herbs use a teaspoon of each and a half teaspoon of dried basil.  Fresh basil we’ll add towards the end.

Boil your kettle.

Drizzle a little olive oil in a frying pan. Gently fry the garlic (don’t let it brown), the finely sliced chilli, the tomatoes, oregano, and thyme and the dried basil if you’re using dried. I like to add a small teaspoon of sugar to bring out the tomatoey flavours. Let the sauce gently bubble for about 10 minutes on a low heat to thicken. Season with a little salt and pepper.

Tomato sauce

With the water from the kettle cook the pasta according to the instructions on the packet, approx 100g per person. The angel hair pasta takes about 3 minutes. So at that point throw the prawns into the tomato sauce. Shred a few basil leaves into the mix and gently stir everything together until the prawns are pink.

Drain the pasta but not too completely. A little water to the mix will keep everything nice and moist. Add some torn basil leaves, a few basil leaves on to the top and a good grating of Parmesan cheese. Delicious!

  2. I made this lovely dish a couple of nights ago and, as a bit of a cooking novice, it was particularly easy to whip up! We even added some extra chilli to add more spice, and it was all chopped up and ready to eat in 15 mins!

    GOOD JOB MUM:) Finally your sons are cooking something delicious
