Simple and tasty. A nice light, summer supper or could go well with a bbq!

A really pleasant, light summer meal. Would also work well as a pasta salad for lunch.

This was quite a good basic recipe but needed a bit of a lift. I used plenty of coarse ground red and green pepper, replaced the soured cream with half-fat creme fraiche mixed with the juice and zest of 1/2 lemon and added thinly-sliced celery and radishes for extra crunch. Made a definite improvement but next time I may add a tsp of shop-bought garlic and chilli sauce to the creme fraiche.

Slightly agree with KJF - this needs a *lot* of seasoning - I added a large pinch of salt and a generous amount of salt for just me. But with that seasoning, I thought this was a really light, refreshing pasta dish.

I haven't cooked it yet but would rather do it as pasta salad, with Mayo + creme fraiche.

Oh, just to add, in desperation, I added some salt and pepper, (and I like my seasoning!) and even that didn't improve it. :(

Made this to the letter, apart from substituting the fennel for some fresh tarragon, as couldn't get fennel, and wanted that aniseedey taste; I thought it was really bland, and if I'm honest, a big waste of prawns.

Sorry GF, I normally love your stuff, but this was just cak. :(
