  • 12 green prawns

  • 1 425g tin Leggos tomato puree

  • handful fresh basil

  • 1 onion, diced

  • 1 clove garlic, crushed

  • angel hair pasta


  • 1.

    Bring a pan of water to the boil and cook the angel hair pasta according to instructions on the packet. Drain the pasta when cooked and keep to the side.

  • 2.

    Peel and devein the green prawns.

  • 3.

    Brown the onion with the garlic and a little olive oil in a fry pan.

    Add the prawns ensuring the prawns are just cooked on both sides. Ensure they are not over cooked as they will become tough.
