Easy peasy prawn spaghetti

This is an unbelievably tasty and easy as anything meal that we have a lot in our house. Pasta is my coconuts favourite food, I always use whole grain for the record, as it is rich in many nutrients and high in dietary fibre, it has also been proven to help lower cholesterol and aid in cancer prevention. Whats not to love about that! Served with some garlic ciabatta bread there isn’t a crumb left. I use a food processor for most of my recipes, as I find it is the easiest way to sneak in all that goodness that they may usually turn their little button nose’s up at. The beauty of this dish is anything and everything goes, you really can throw in any mediterranean veggies and they will taste delicious. There is nothing complicated or pretentious about this dish, just simple comforting home cooking. Enjoy.

Step one; Boil your kettle, add a little salt and olive oil to a pan and pour in the boiling water along with the pasta. In a pan drizzle a little olive oil and add the corgettes and tomoatoes (Or any veg of your choice)

Step two; In the food processor blitz a handful of cherry tomatoes, half a corgette, handful of spinach, a little basil, few cloves of garlic and some tinned chopped tomatoes or passata. This is the sauce for the kids.

Step three; Heat the childrens sauce in a pan and go back to the food processor, this time blitz some basil, a few garlic cloves, one fresh red chilli and some tinned tomatoes or passata. Then add to the pan with the tomatoes and corgettes. Splash in a little white wine.

Step four; Add the prawns to both pans and a good handful of spinach to the adults, by this time the pasta should be ready to serve, give the prawns around 2-3 minutes so they are heated through (If you are using pre cooked, if not go by the guidelines on the pack)

Step five; Mix the pasta with the sauce, sprinkle over some good cheese, a good grinding of black pepper, pour yourself a glass of red wine and serve.
