I didn't much fancy boiling the prawns - I felt you'd be throwing a lot of the prawn flavour away with the pasta water. Also, I felt it would need the added depth of a little sauted onion, so I added the prawns to the onion once it was transparent but not coloured. I then added the creme fraiche and seasoned with lots of black pepper, then added that to the pasta. I mixed the Rocket through at the last minute. I thought it was lovely, my son thought it was lovely, but my husband - well, it made him heave! So, not 100% successful there!

Not bad but wouldn't bother cooking again as there are many better recipes out there.
