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.

It’s easy to enhance flavor of shrimp while pairing it with pasta in a single dish, Shrimp Puttanesca. This history of puttanesca sauce is interesting as it was developed in Naples by prostitutes to lure in potential customers who were hungry but also interested in other services.

This recipe is easy if you can find passata from the top Italian brand Cirio which makes a deep tasting tomato sauce in seconds. It goes really well with the black pasta (made with squid ink).
