Method

Cathy's Prawn Fettucine is a community recipe submitted by mscash and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • In a large pan, heat up some oil and add the garlic and chillies (which are optional, I love spicy food but up to you).
  • Add the prawns and stir until they change to a coral pink colour.
  • Add a carton of cream, stir and add some salt for taste. Make sure you turn the heat down so it slowly simmers for around 6-8 minutes and once the sauce has thickened (when you are stirring it with your wooden spoon the sauce sticks to the back of spoon so its thickened) add your boiled pasta in for another 2-3 minutes and the chopped chives.
  • Serve with cracked black pepper and freshly shaved parmesan. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
