Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Prawn & Courgette Pasta

Boil a kettle (used in step 2)

Drain the prawns and pat completely dry with kitchen roll

2 Prawn & Courgette Pasta

Add the pasta to a pot of boiling water with salt (optional) for 7-9 min, until the pasta is nearly cooked with a slight bite, stirring occasionally

3 Prawn & Courgette Pasta

Meanwhile, slice the courgette(s) in half lengthways discarding the ends

Peel lengths off of the courgette halves to form long ribbons, reserving the inner flesh

Set the courgette ribbons aside for step 6

4 Prawn & Courgette Pasta

Chop the inner courgette flesh into 1cm pieces for step 6

Crush the garlic with the side of a knife, peel it and chop finely (or grate)

5 Prawn & Courgette Pasta

Add 1-2 tbsp of olive oil to a large pan (preferably non-stick) on a medium heat

Once the oil is hot, add the garlic and oregano and cook for 1 min, or until just browned, stirring regularly

Tip: Don't walk away as it can burn quite quickly!

6 Prawn & Courgette Pasta

Add the courgette pieces (not the ribbons) to the oregano and cook for 3-5 min, until softened, stirring often

Meanwhile, return to the pasta pot and once nearly finished cooking, submerge the ribbons for 30 sec-1 min, until just softened

Drain both, and reserve the pasta water for step 7

7 Prawn & Courgette Pasta

Add 35g (70g) of butter to the courgette and oregano mix

Once melted, add the prawns and cook for 2 min or until pink and cooked through

Season to taste with salt and plenty of pepper
