    really delicious and SO easy!  -  10 Jul 2011


    Altered ingredient amounts. My partner couldn't get enough of this dish! I made a double batch of the marinade and set aside half to coat the pasta; I then marinated pre-cooked prawns for about 45 minutes. I tossed the prawns and marinade together with wholewheat linguine. The family loved it and partner commented that it was the best prawns & pasta he'd ever had.  -  21 Jul 2008
