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
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
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
While the pepper is cooking, peel and finely slice (don't chop!) the garlic
Once the pepper has softened, add the sliced garlic and prawns to the pan and cook for 1 min
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
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!
