Prawn Spaghetti With Courgette, Feta & Chilli

Angela Casley adds a delectable spicy twist to this seafood pasta

I love adding some simple, fresh flavours to spaghetti, leaving all the creamy sauces behind. In this recipe, prawns are paired with a hint of lemon and tasty greens. You can knock this up in no time at all. The addition of roasted tomatoes is scrumptious.

Serves 4

8 vine tomatoes
400g spaghetti
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, sliced
1 red chilli, sliced
2 courgettes, grated
400g prawns, peeled and tail removed
Zest of 1 lemon
¼ cup lemon juice
2 cups shredded spinach
100g crumbled feta
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
100g smoked salmon, sliced thinly
¼ cup chopped dill

1. Preheat oven to 180C. Place the tomatoes on to a baking tray, season and bake for 20 minutes. Remove.

2. Cook the pasta according to the packet instructions.

3. In a large frying pan, heat the oil. Add the onion, garlic and chilli cooking until light in colour. Toss in the courgettes until just cooked. Scoop to the side of the pan and add the prawns, cook for 4 -5 minutes or until cooked through. Add the zest, juice and spinach.

4. Toss into the drained spaghetti. Season, then serve on a platter with feta, salmon, the roast tomatoes and a sprinkle of dill.
