  1. Put the beansprouts in a bowl, cover with cold water and leave for 10 minutes, then drain (this crisps them up). Meanwhile cook the pasta in a pan of boiling salted water according to the packet instructions.

  2. Tip the pasta into a colander and run under the cold tap, then drain thoroughly. Toss with the carrots, spring onions, cucumber, prawns and beansprouts.

  3. For the dressing, whisk together the sunflower oil, soy sauce, vinegar, ginger, garlic and honey. Pour over the pasta and lightly toss. Drizzle with a little sesame oil to serve. You can make this up to 4 hours ahead - keep it chilled until ready to serve.

This is really yummy, I used a multi grain tagliatelle, left out the raw garlic as my flatmate can't eat and used a lot less oil & it was delicious.
