This is a quick & easy pasta dish, perfect for a busy day when it’s already well into evening and the stove has not yet been lit. Not authentically Italian, perhaps, but delicious.
I used this recipe, omitting the cheese, and adding some veggie prawns for protein. Instead of a tin of cherry tomatoes, I used passata (tomato sauce) that I had left over in the fridge, and added fresh cherry tomatoes from our allotment (just about the last of them).
I cooked the fresh tomatoes with the garlic for about seven or eight minutes before adding the passata and basil.
The veggie prawns were sauteed separately with a some freshly minced garlic, and were added on top of the pasta for serving.
