Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Pink Pesto, Prawn & Pepper Linguine

Boil a kettle

Add the linguine to a pot of boiled water with a large pinch of salt and bring to the boil over a high heat

Cook the linguine for 8-10 min or until cooked with a slight bite

Once done, drain the linguine, reserving some of the starchy pasta water

2 Pink Pesto, Prawn & Pepper Linguine

While the linguine is cooking, chop the red pepper[s] in half (scrape the seeds and pith out with a teaspoon) and cut into thin strips

3 Pink Pesto, Prawn & Pepper Linguine

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-low heat

Once hot, add the pepper strips and cook for 5-7 min or until softened

4 Pink Pesto, Prawn & Pepper Linguine

While the pepper is cooking, peel and finely slice (don't chop!) the garlic

5 Pink Pesto, Prawn & Pepper Linguine

Once the pepper has softened, add the sliced garlic and prawns to the pan and cook for 1 min

6 Pink Pesto, Prawn & Pepper Linguine

Add the tomato paste and Chinese rice wine to the pan and cook for 1 min

Add the soft cheese, sun-dried tomato nut pesto, chilli flakes (can't handle the heat? Go easy!) and 75ml [150ml] starchy pasta water to the pan and cook for 2 min or until a thick sauce remains

Season with a generous pinch of salt and pepper

7 Pink Pesto, Prawn & Pepper Linguine

Add the drained linguine to the pan and give everything a mix up - this is your pink pesto, prawn & pepper linguine

Tip: Add a splash more starchy pasta water if your sauce is looking a little dry!
