Posted by | April 08, 2014 | Recipes | No Comments


500 g Pasta Nova penne

50 mL butter

4 cloves chopped garlic

1 chopped onion

50 mL chopped fresh parsley

500 g uncooked medium prawns- cleaned

3 tomatoes- peeled, seeded and chopped

125 mL dry white wine (or apple juice)

5 mL salt

1 mL pepper


Cook Pasta Nova penne in a large pot of boiling salted water until tender but firm- 8 to 10 minutes. Drain the water.

In a large frying pan, melt the butter and cook the garlic and onion until tender but not brown. Add the prawns and half the parsley and cook for 1 minute. Add tomatoes, wine, salt and pepper. Bring to the boil and cook for a few minutes, just until the prawns turn opaque.

Pour sauce over pasta and garnish with remaining parsley. Serve immediately.
