Orecchiette with garlicky prawns & basil recipe

One of my go-to pasta recipes for a quick & yummy meal.
I have also served this dish numerous times as a starter at dinner parties.

Feeds 2 people as a main dish or 4 people as a starter.

– 150g orecchiette
– 50g butter
– 1 crushed garlic clove
– 150g peeled raw prawns
– Shredded basil leaves, a handful 
– Lemon

Get cooking:
Cook the orecchiette according to the packet instructions and drain.

In a pan, melt the butter and cook the garlic for a couple of minutes. Take care not to brown the garlic.

Add the prawns and quickly cook until pink. 

Take pan off the heat, add the drained pasta, shredded basil leaves and a good squeeze of lemon. Mix it all together and enjoy!
