Serves: 2
  • Linguine (enough for 2 people)
  • 2 cloves garlic (peeled and finely chopped)
  • Handful of cherry tomatoes (halved)
  • Olive oil
  • 2 handfuls of fresh rocket (roughly torn)
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 100g prawns (de-frosted if cooking from frozen)
  • 1 tbspn tomato puree
  • 1 tspn smoked paprika
  • 2 red chillies (finely sliced)
  • 50ml white wine
  • Salt/ Pepper
  1. Cook the linguine according to packet instructions.
  2. In the meantime heat a good glug of olive oil in a large, deep frying pan. Add the tomatoes and garlic and cook on a medium heat for 3-4 mins until the tomatoes are soft. Then add the tomato puree, paprika, chillies and white wine. Mix well and leave on a gentle simmer for just another 3-4 mins.
  3. Add the prawns to the pan for just just 30 seconds - 1 min. Then drain the linguine and add to the pan with the rocket. Squeez in some lemon juice and mix well so that the tomatoes coat the pasta. The prawns will continue to cook during this time.
  4. Take the pan off the heat and add just a drizzle of olive oil and the rocket. Season with salt and pepper and then mix everything together one more time.
  5. Serve immediately.
