Use the frozen prawns. Chop the pancetta to small dice. Cut the tomatoes in half.
2
Put the oil in a frying pan and add a smashed garlic on medium heat.
3
Start boiling the pasta. Use 1-1.5% salt for the amount of water (10-15g salt for 1 litre water).
4

5
Press down the prawn heads to extract the brown meat. This is the key to this dish!
6
Add the cherry tomatoes and some dried chilli and cook for 1-2 minutes. Add 1.5 to 2 ladles pasta water.

8
Add the cooked linguine and mix well for 1 minute. Transfer to a serving dish and garnish with the parsley.

Tips & Note

●You can of course eat the prawns as well
●The success of this dish will depend on your job of pressing the heads - otherwise it will be a standard basic sauce
●You should have a great prawn tasting dish, so you won't need any cheese on top
