Plump juicy prawns, pesto-style Italian parsley and lemon sauce 'gremolata' are perfect partners when teamed with pasta




    • STEP 1

      Cook the pasta in a large pan of salted boiling water following pack instructions until al dente.

    • STEP 2

      Meanwhile, make the gremolata. In a food processor (or by hand), finely chop the garlic with the zest, parsley (include the stalks) and rocket. Season generously, add the oil and lemon juice, and mix to make a juicy paste. Set aside.

    • STEP 3

      Melt the knob of butter with a small splash of oil in a frying pan, add the prawns and fry quickly on each side. Add the chilli flakes and cook for 1 min or so more until the prawns are cooked.

    • STEP 4

      Drain the pasta and return to the pan. Add the gremolata and the chilli prawns, toss well to coat and check the seasoning. Divide
