Prawn pasta in a creamy sauce

I recently ate some pasta with a creamy white sauce and prawns in a restaurant.

I can't seem to find any similar recipe on the internet.

Any ideas guys?   question  smile

Bechamel?

Bechamel is a white cream sauce that is used in many dishes. It acts as a base for many sauces.

May be it was just cream, I would simply  cook prawn with some oil,chilly , garlic  and white wine and at last add the cream and let it thicken a little bit.Very simple. yummy
