Tomato and Prawn Spaghetti

Pasta is always a favourite comfort food for my family and me; it’s quick and easy to cook and always tastes good. This simple but delightful Tomato and Prawn Spaghetti is one of my own recipes that I cook when I want a quick meal during the week. It has so many flavours, is low in fat and perfect if like me you are trying to lose some weight!

Tomato and Prawn Spaghetti
Serves 4

1 tablespoon olive oil
2 garlic cloves, crushed
240g tiger prawns, peeled
splash of white wine
400g can chopped tomatoes
1 teaspoon crushed chilli flakes
salt and pepper
spaghetti or pasta of choice

Heat the olive oil in a large pan and cook the crushed garlic for a few mins at a gentle heat. Add prawns and a splash of white wine and cook for a further few mins. Add the tomatoes, crushed chilli flakes, salt and pepper and simmer for 10 mins. Boil pasta according to packet instructions, drain and add to the tomato sauce and serve.

This is very nice. However, for four people you need more chopped tomato. I also added olives to this.
