    Tagliatelle with cherry tomatoes, courgettes and prawns

    • Preparation time: 5 minutes
    • Cooking time: 15 minutes
    • Total time: 20 minutes

    Serves: 4


    2 tbsp essential olive oil
    400g cherry vine tomatoes
    1 courgette, cut into half moons
    2 garlic cloves, sliced
    180g raw extra large king prawns
    300g dried tagliatelle
    1 essential lemon, zest and juice
    1 tbsp essential mascarpone
    handful basil, torn 


    1. Put a large pan of salted water on to boil. Heat the oil in a large frying pan, add the tomatoes and cook over a high heat for about 3 minutes until they begin to blister. Turn the heat down a little and add the courgette and garlic; continue to cook, stirring often, for 3-4 minutes until the courgette is turning golden. Add the prawns and cook until they turn pink (about 1-2 minutes).

    2. Meanwhile, cook the pasta according to pack instructions, saving a mug of the cooking water before draining. Tip the pasta straight into the sauce and add the lemon zest and juice along with the mascarpone. Stir, adding enough cooking water to make the sauce coat the pasta; season. Divide between 4 warm plates and top with the basil.
