Prawn pasta

Prep Time5 minutes
Cook Time10 minutes
Servings: 2 people


  • 200 g gluten free spaghetti
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion (diced)
  • 2 spring onions (finely chopped)
  • 3 garlic cloves (minced – you can add more or less depending on your preference)
  • 10 cherry tomatoes (halved)
  • 150 g ready cooked prawns
  • Salt and black pepper
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • Handful fresh parsley


  • Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil on the hob and add your gluten free pasta. Cook (I tend to find cooking gluten free pasta for a minute or two less than it states on the packet stops it from breaking!), drain and set aside. Save a little of your pasta water in a mug.
  • Meanwhile add your olive oil to a saucepan on a medium to high heat. Add your onion, spring onion and garlic and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Next add your cherry tomatoes and cook for a few minutes until the tomatoes start to release their juices slightly. Add your prawns and cook for a further couple of minutes.
  • Turn the heat to low and add your cooked gluten free pasta and a splash of pasta water to loosen. Season with salt and pepper and add your lemon juice. Mix well until everything is combined.
  • Remove from the heat and serve with fresh parsley.
