  • 160g Spaghetti
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 tsp capers
  • 200g prawns
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 small red chilli
  • 1 knob parmesan cheese
  • Handful fresh basil
  • Olive oil


  1. Boil a kettle and pour water into a large pot over a high temperature. Add a good pinch of salt and add your pasta. While the pasta is cooking, heat your olive oil in a large pan. Throw in your cherry tomatoes and cook for three minutes stirring constantly. Add your prawns, garlic, chilli, lemon zest, half of your lemon juice and the capers. Cook until prawns have turned a lovely orange colour.

  2. When your pasta is aldenté, take it straight from the pot using tongs and add it to the pan with the prawns and tomatoes. Lower the heat of the pan so it stays warm but will not burn the ingredients while you toss it all together with the remainder or the lemon juice and a good lug of olive oil.

  3. Serve with torn basil leaves and freshly grated parmesan.
