Family Favourite-Pasta with Prawns and Feta


pasta with prawns-Honest Mum

This healthy, vibrant dish of wholewheat pasta with delicious prawns, tangy tomatoes, hot chilli and creamy feta cheese makes a regular appearance in this house.

Pasta can feel a bit boring at times but this dish is far from mundane! Pasta packed with protein from the prawns and feta, it will keep your kids full for longer! You can use large or small prawns but I only had the small ones in!

Here’s the recipe:

pasta-Honest Mum


80ml extra virgin olive oil
6 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
500g baby tomatoes, halved
1 tablespoon dried oregano
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to season
500g cooked prawns (large or small)
375g pasta tubes (we used whole wheat)
100g Greek feta cheese, crumbled
1 red chilli, finely chopped


Start to cook the pasta in a large pan of salted, boiling water.

Meanwhile heat 40ml (half of the) oil and garlic for 2 minutes. When the garlic starts to golden, add tomatoes, oregano, salt and pepper and cook over a medium heat for 5-6 minutes.

Take the pasta off the heat when al dente.

Add the prawns to your sauce.

Drain the pasta and mix the sauce through.

Divide the pasta between four serving bowls.

Sprinkle feta over the top, garnish with chilli and drizzle the remaining olive oil over them. Serve immediately.
