Ingredients

  • 280g linguine pasta
  • 200g sugar snap pea, trimmed
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
    olive oil

    Olive oil

    ol-iv oyl

    Probably the most widely-used oil in cooking, olive oil is pressed from fresh olives. It's…

  • 2 large garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1 large red chilli, seeded and finely chopped
  • 24 raw king prawn, peeled
  • 12 cherry tomato, halved
  • a handful of fresh basil leaves
  • mixed salad leaves and crusty white bread, to serve

For the lime dressing

  • 2 tbsp virtually fat-free fromage frais
  • grated zest and juice of 2 limes
    Lime

    Lime

    ly-m

    The same shape, but smaller than…

  • 2 tsp golden caster sugar

Method

  1. Mix the dressing ingredients in a small bowl and season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

  2. Cook the pasta according to the packet instructions. Add the sugar snap peas for the last minute or so of cooking time.

  3. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan, toss in the garlic and chilli and cook over a fairly gentle heat for about 30 seconds without letting the garlic brown. Tip in the prawns and cook over a high heat, stirring frequently, for about 3 minutes until they turn pink.

  4. Add the tomatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes until they just start to soften. Drain the pasta and sugar snaps well, then toss into the prawn mixture. Tear in the basil leaves, stir, and season with salt and pepper.

  5. Serve with salad leaves drizzled with the lime dressing, and warm crusty bread.

Lovely and really quick to make. Only used 1 lime in the dressing and thought that was sufficient but is personal preference. Don't forget the basil - I added half way through eating - it really added to the flavour. Will be making again soon.

Sorry, really wasn't too keen on this at all. Although the flavour was nice we found the dish to be very dry, maybe better if more tomato? Did like the dressing though and will do that again.

Despite one of my boys professing not to like linguine and the other one turning his nose up at the recipe, this meal was eaten with gusto, and requests for 'having it again soon'. I too didnt bother with the leaves, but did make the dressing and added that all to the dish at the end. Bloomin lovely.

This is my FAVOURITE RECIPE EVER. And totally Slimming World-friendly if you swap the olive oil for the dreaded FryLight.
