- 400g dried short-shaped pasta
- Low-calorie cooking spray
- 2 garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped
- 2 ripe plum tomatoes, finely chopped
- 2 long red chillies, deseeded (optional) and diced
- salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 400g cooked and peeled tiger prawns
- 2 x 70g bags wild rocket
- A crisp salad, to serve
Cook the pasta according to the packet instructions. Drain and set aside.
Spray a deep frying pan or wok with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a high heat.
Add the garlic, tomatoes and red chillies, season well, add the prawns and heat through for a minute or two. Then add the drained pasta.
Remove from the heat, fold through the rocket and stir to mix well. Serve immediately with a crisp salad if desired.
If you’re not a fan of prawns use canned crab meat instead. Simply toss the crab meat with the rocket and serve.
