Courgette and Prawn Penne

Courgette and prawns are a perfect combination, especially with Parmigiano.

Recipe By: KitchenCIB (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/94)
Serves 1 Cook: 12 min

Ingredients

Penne 100g
Courgette 1
Prawns 12-16
Mushrooms 2
Garlic 1 clove
Dried chilli a little
Olive oil 4 tbsp
Chicken stock cube 1/2
Hot water 100ml

Method

1
Start cooking the penne. Use 1-1.5% salt to 1 litre water.
2
Cut the courgette to the same size as the penne. Slice the mushrooms.
3
Fry the whole smashed garlic and finely chopped dried chilli in a frying pan on medium heat for 3 minutes.
4
Remove the garlic and add the courgettes and mushrooms on medium heat.
5
Dissolve the stock cube in water and add to the frying pan.
6
Add the prawns and 1 or 2 ladles of pasta water.
7
When the penne is cooked, add to the frying pan.
8
Place on a serving dish and cover with grated Parmigiano reggiano.

Tips & Note

If the sauce becomes too watery, it will ruin the dish so add the chicken stock a bit at a time. I tried to copy the recipe from the menu of an Italian restaurant I go to often, but I'm not sure I did it well. But it still tastes good.
