About this recipe: Quick and easy to make, this is a hit for a dinner party or just a quick family dinner. I also occasionally substitute chicken for the prawn for another great flavoured dish!


Serves: 8 

  • 750g cooked prawns, peeled and deveined
  • 120g butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 250ml thickened cream
  • ½ small bunch parsley, chopped
  • ½ cup chopped fresh basil
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • 100g grated Parmesan cheese
  • salt and ground black to taste
  • 1 packet (500g) linguine

  1. Cook pasta in lots of boiling salted water until al dente according to packet directions - about 9-11 minutes
  2. While linguine is cooking, melt butter in a large frypan. Add garlic, and saute briefly to release flavor. Add cream; heat just to boiling, stirring frequently. Lower heat, and stir in the prawns, parsley, basil, and thyme. Continue cooking until the prawns are just heated through. Do not overcook. Remove sauce from heat.
  3. Drain the pasta, and toss lightly with the sauce. Toss again with cheese, and salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.
