    1. Heat the oil in a pan and add the garlic, chilli and sauté for about 2 minutes until the garlic is soft. Make sure that you cook over a medium heat as you do not want to burn the garlic. Discard the garlic because the olive oil would have already infused.
    2. Add the prawns, capers, olives and courgettes and cook for a further 8 minutes until the prawns have turned pink. Add the tomatoes and cook for a further minute. Season with salt and pepper.
    3. Cook the spaghetti according to pack instructions and drain thoroughly, reserving a little of the pasta water.
    4. Add the pasta and Parmesan to the pan with a little of the water from the pasta pot and one tablespoons of the parsley and toss to combine, cook for a further minute. Serve immediately with a sprinkling of the remaining parsley.
