Step 1: Having practcally nothing to eat in the house I gave this a go and it was pleasingly, absolutely delicious!
Step 3: 1. Put the spaghetti or noodles (depending upon Italian/Asian theme) to boil
Step 4: 2. In another pan heat a spoonful of olive oil and add about a teaspoon of finely choped onion and one clove of chopped garlic.
Step 5: 3. Before they are quite brown add one chopped tomato and simmer, stirring until tomato begins to mush.
Step 6: 4. While tomato is softening add a generous pinch of the vegetable stock power and chilli flakes along with a splash of boiling water to help tomato turn mushy.
Step 7: 5. Once the mixture is saucy looking and the tomato has broken down taste the sauce and season, add a couple handfuls of the prawns and continue to simmer for a minute or two until the prawns are heated through if using cooked, if using raw cook for a few minutes longer.
Step 8: 6. At the end add a teeny squirt of honey to balance the chilli and if using spaghetti a sprinke of chopped basil for an Italian style meal or if using noodles add coriander for an Asian theme.
Step 9: 7. Drain spaghetti/noodles and add straight to prawn mixture, stiring to coat. Seanson some more.
Step 10: 8. Serve piping hot.
Step 12: This recipe is gorgeous, I tried it without the herbs as there was not much in the kitchen! But I can imagnine either would make a nice addition. There’s loads of spicy, fresh tomato sauce in the bowl so you can serve with bread to dip.
