About this recipe: A simple yet luxurious dish, this prawn and white wine cream sauce is easy to whip up for a comforting midweek meal. This recipe uses fusilli pasta but works wonderfully with tagliatelle, penne or farfalle, as well.


Serves: 4 

  • 500g fusilli pasta
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 300g shelled prawns
  • 250ml double cream
  • 150ml white wine
  • salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:35min 

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Once sauce has reduced slightly, add pasta and mix well. Simmer 1 to 2 minutes; season with salt and pepper to taste before serving.
