In a saucepan bring water to the boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until just al dente; drain and set aside.
In a large frying pan heat oil over medium heat and sauté the onion for 5 minutes. Add prawns and cook 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add cream, stir together and simmer for 10 minutes; finally, add wine and stir all together.
Once sauce has reduced slightly, add pasta and mix well. Simmer 1 to 2 minutes; season with salt and pepper to taste before serving.
