About this recipe: I recently came home from holiday and had a visitor the very next day. There was hardly anything in the house, but luckily I had a bag of prawns in the freezer and I recalled an old Italian recipe. It tasted fantastic (and the pink sauce looked great) and I wrote it down straightaway as my husband said that I should definitely make it again.


Serves: 6 

  • 500g fettuccine pasta
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons tomato puree
  • 225ml dry white wine
  • 750g prawns, boiled and peeled
  • 225ml whipping cream
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. Bring a large pan of water to the boil. Cook the pasta according to packet instructions and drain.
  2. In the meantime heat the olive oil in a medium frying pan. Saute the garlic until soft, but do not brown.
  3. Stir the tomato with the wine and add to the pan. Simmer for 10 minutes over a low heat without a lid.
  4. Cut the prawns into small pieces and stir into the sauce. When they are pink remove about 2/3 of the prawns with a slotted spoon and blend them. Return them to the pan. Stir in the cream and season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately over the pasta.
