  • Butter
  • 200g Squid ink spaghetti
  • 1 leek, finely chopped)
  • 3 cloves garlic (pressed)
  • 100g mushrooms (sliced)
  • Tomato sauce (I used a homemade with capers, olives and basil)
  • Tomato puree to suit
  • Glass white wine
  • Prawns (I used 2 x pack 153g King Prawns, cooked and peeled from the Coop)

  1. Sweat the leeks in the melted butter in a large frying pan then add the pressed garlic

  2. Add the sliced mushrooms and continue until the mushrooms have softened

  3. Bring to the boil a large pan of water (with a touch of oil and salt to taste)

  4. Add to the frying pan the tomato sauce, the puree and basil then season and simmer

  5. Add the spaghetti to the pan of water and simmer for the appropriate time (8 mins with mine)

  6. At the same time add the wine to the sauce with the prawns and simmer for the same time as the pasta

  7. Serve the spaghetti topped with a good portion of sauce on top and add parmesan to suit
