Prawn & courgette spaghetti

Prawn & courgette spaghetti

main courses | serves 6

1. While cooking the pasta, according to packet instructions, melt the butter with a splash of olive oil in a large frying pan on a medium heat. Add the courgettes and cook until slightly browned. Add the garlic, chilli and prawns and cook until the prawns are cooked through. Take off the heat and squeeze over the lemon.
2. Drain the pasta once cooked, reserving a little cooking liquid. Add the pasta to the frying pan and toss with the courgettes and prawns. Add some cooking liquid if it looks a little dry, then stir in the dill or parsley and a handful of parmesan if you want. Season to taste and serve at once.
