Ingredients

olive oil

1 tbs

brown onion

1 medium, finely chopped

leek(s)

2 whole, thinly sliced

fresh thyme

1 tbs

garlic

2 clove(s), crushed

fresh red chilli

1 whole, deseeded, finely chopped

500 g

1 tbs

dry wholemeal pasta

240 g

green prawns

300 g, peeled, tails intact

fresh basil

cup(s), small leaves

Instructions

  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook onion, leek, thyme and garlic for 7 minutes or until softened. Add chilli and cook for 1 minute or until fragrant.
  2. Add tomatoes, tomato paste, 3½ cups (825ml) water and spaghetti to pan and bring to the boil. Boil, uncovered, stirring regularly, for 8 minutes or until pasta is almost tender and sauce has thickened.
  3. Add prawns and cook, uncovered, for 2 minutes or until prawns are cooked and pasta is tender.
  4. Meanwhile, shred half the basil. Stir shredded basil through pasta. Serve sprinkled with remaining basil.

Notes

SERVING SUGGESTION: Garden salad drizzled with lemon juice. TIP: Stand uncooked pasta upright in the mixture until the bottom half is soft enough to bend without breaking. Stir pasta regularly so it cooks evenly and doesn’t stick together.
