Creamy Tuscan Prawn Pasta

You know I love my pasta recipes and this one that popped up on Pinterest is yet another delicious dish! I tweaked the original recipe to give it a bit of a kick and it went down really well. I really recommend searching recipes on Pinterest if you are losing your cooking inspiration, as that’s where I am getting a lot of mine from recently.

What I was really pleased about with this recipe was there was literally barely any prep apart from chopping up some sun-dried tomatoes!! It’s also a great meal to make on a busy evening where you don’t have much time to prep food and wait for ages for it to be ready – it literally takes about 15 minutes altogether! And it’s fairly healthy as well. Win win.

Please give this recipe that I’ve adapted and come up with a try, and share with me how it was for you 🙂

Ingredients (for 2 people);

  • Pack of cooked king prawns (Approx. 12 – 15 in quantity)
  • 150g spaghetti
  • Handful of baby spinach
  • 150g sun-dried tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • 300ml crème fraiche
  • Approx. 1 tbsp lemon juice (to taste)
  • 1 tbsp Italian/Mixed herbs
  • 1 tsp hot chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp basil (dried or fresh is fine)
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • Salt & Pepper


  1. Boil a kettle. Add the boiling water to a pan with the spaghetti and cook for approx. 10 – 12 minutes.
  2. In the mean time heat up the 2 tbsp butter in a wide pan on a medium heat. Once hot, add in the garlic and fry for 2 minutes.
  3. Add the chopped sun-dried tomatoes, crème fraiche, mixed herbs, chilli flakes and a tbsp of lemon juice and mix. Let this sauce simmer for 2 minutes but be careful not to let it bubble too much.
  4. Add in the king prawns and cook for a few minutes until everything is warmed through and coated in the sauce which should have slightly thickened.
  5. Add the spinach and basil and cook for another 2 minutes. Season with salt & pepper. By now your spaghetti should be cooked 🙂
  6. Drain the spaghetti and add to the pan with the prawns in, mixing everything up and drizzling with a little more lemon juice.
  7. Serve up and enjoy!
