Pasta with wine, sage, cream, bacon and barbequed prawns

I like to experiment with pasta recipes and this is one of my variations.


  • 100g of green prawns per person - deveined

  • 1 crushed garlic clove

  • pasta - can be any

  • 1 onion

  • fresh sage

  • white wine for cooking

  • pouring cream - 250mls

  • grated tasty cheese

  • olive oil

  • knob of butter

  • grilled bacon or pancetta finely sliced


  • 1.

    Cook pasta in salted water and stir once to remove clumped pasta. Drain.

  • 2.

    Lightly brush prawns with oil and barbeque for 2 minutes either side and turn. Cook until prawn meat has just turned pink. Try not to overcook prawns or they will become tough.

  • 3.

    Add butter to pan and cook onion, garlic and sage until onion is transparent.

  • 4.

    Add white wine to taste and pouring cream and heat through - slightly reduce.

  • 5.

    Add pasta and stir through until heated.

  • 6.

    Serve pasta and top with cheese and bacon, then finally prawns.


If I have any fresh green vegetables in the fridge, I like to add these for colour. It's fun and easy to play with this recipe and try to use what you have in the fridge.
