Pancetta 50-60g
Garlic 1 clove
Cherry tomatoes 8
Olive oil 2 tbsp

1
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
Add the frozen prawns to the frying pan and cook for 3 minutes. Add the pancetta and wait for the fat to melt.
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.

If the sauce is too salty, add plain water. if it's not salty enough, add more pasta water. Allow the sauce to emulsify. It will be ready when it's thickened.
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
