Zucchini, prawns and mint make this pasta a lighter, fresher choice for those hot summer days

Ingredients

olive oil

1 tbs

green prawns

300 g, peeled

cherry tomato

250 g

garlic

1 clove(s), finely chopped

fresh red chilli

½ whole, finely chopped

zucchini

2 medium, coarsely grated

pasta

240 g, (angel hair)

fresh mint

2 tbs, chopped

lemon(s)

1 medium, rind, finely grated and juiced

Instructions

  1. Heat 1 teaspoon of oil in a deep non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the prawns and cook for 2 minutes each side or until they curl and change colour. Transfer to a plate. Cover with foil to keep warm.
  2. Heat another teaspoon of oil in the frying pan over medium–low heat. Add the tomatoes, garlic and chilli. Cook, stirring, for 3–4 minutes or until tomatoes soften sightly. Add the zucchini and cook, stirring, for 1–2 minutes or just until tender.
  3. Meanwhile, cook the pasta in a large saucepan of boiling salted water, following packet instructions, or until just tender. Drain well.
  4. Add the pasta, prawns, mint and lemon rind to zucchini mixture. Toss until well combined. Season with salt and pepper. Divide among serving dishes and drizzle with lemon juice and remaining oil.

Notes

TIP: If you like spicier flavours, use the whole chilli.
