    New to cooking but a big fan of prawns and pasta dishes (my limit before was tuna & pasta!), so tried this out. I must say it is excellent, so cheers for putting this up. Few tweaks I made - Couldn't find green chilli sauce so finely chopped some medium heat green chillis and used them instead. Couldn't find a bay-leaf either so cooked without. - 10 Nov 2010
