Family Favourite-Pasta with Prawns and Feta

 

pasta with prawns-Honest Mum

Our family favourite of pasta with prawns and feta

This healthy, vibrant dish of whole wheat pasta with prawns, tomatoes, chilli and feta cheese makes a regular appearance in this house. I’m vegan but my kids love this (Alexander without the cheese as he’s dairy-free) and I go easy on the chilli for them.

Here’s the recipe:

pasta-Honest Mum

Ingredients:

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

Method:

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.

    Yum yum yum. Very tempting. I have one question for you, my lovely, can you cook all these lovely dishes from “Tasty Tuesdays” or is your dad the main cook for the posts? Ha ha ha 😉 I feel like a really bad cook when see all these gorgeous meals!

    Yum! And absolutely gorgeous photos as always. It would never occur to me to put feta in warm pasta so will definitely give this a whirl. And the chilli gives it that extra pull for me 😉

    I like prawn flavoured things but have a problem with the texture of prawns. Maybe this would be a good recipe to try and wean myself onto them as there are so many textures I might not notice! It does look delicious!

      Ooh yes definitely try it. I didn’t realise so many disliked prawns until I started this linky (might have converted a few) x
