Recipe : Spinach prawn pasta

My love affair started with food when I discovered Anyone can cook.

Here is my simplified version of Spinach prawn pasta

The recipe
Serves 4
1-2 tbs olive oil

4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced.
3 large plump tomatoes
10 large prawns
Zest of 1 lemon and juice of half of it
3-4 tbs of sweet yogurt (or fresh cream)
Handful spinach & cherry tomatoes
Salt and pepper to taste
Feta cheese

Bring a large pan of water to boil and blanch large tomatoes. Skin it, chop it and keep aside.
Cook pasta according to package but keep it al dente.

Heat olive oil in a large frying pan and fry garlic till golden and put aside. Add prawns, lemon zest and chopped tomatoes into the same frying pan and fry until prawns are cooked (don't overcook it) and the tomatoes start to sweat. Season with salt and pepper. Add pasta, yogurt and give it a good mix. Throw in the spinach and cherry tomatoes and give it a good stir, remove from heat and keep it covered for a couple of minutes while you get your plates ready.
Dish out onto your plate and crumble some feta cheese and fried garlic on it. Serve immediately.
