  1. Bring a pan of water to a boil and cook the pasta to pack instructions, adding the beans and peas for the last minute of cooking time. Drain and refresh under cold running water, then drain again.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large pan over a low heat. Cook the the garlic, basil stems and tomatoes, stirring, for 2 minutes. Increase the heat to medium-high and add the prawns. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until the prawns are pink. Discard the basil stems.
  3. Toss the pasta with the prawn mixure, lemon juice and most of the basil leaves and dill. Season to taste.
  4. Divide the pasta between plates, top with the remaining herbs and serve with the lemon wedges on the side.


Replace the prawns with 320g cooked and shredded skinless chicken breast.
