  • Boil a large pot of salted water for the linguine.
  • Halve, peel and chop the onion into small pieces.
  • Roughly tear the basil leaves.
  • Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).

TIP: If you’re in a hurry you can boil the water in your kettle.

  • When the pot of water is boiling, add the linguine and bring back to the boil.
  • Cook until softened, 12 mins. 
  • Once cooked, drain in a colander and pop back in the pot.
  • Drizzle with oil and stir through to stop it sticking together.
  • Meanwhile, place a pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Once hot, add the prawns.
  • Season with salt and pepper and cook for 4-5 mins.
  • Once cooked, remove the pan from the heat and transfer the prawns to a plate or bowl. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw prawns. The prawns are cooked when pink on the outside and opaque in the middle.
  • Return the (now empty) pan to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Add the onion and a pinch of salt and pepper to the pan. Fry until softened, stirring occasionally, 4-5 mins. 
  • Add the garlic and half the dried Italian herbs (double for 4p) and fry for another minute.
  • Pour in the passata and 100ml water (double for 4p) and simmer for 3-5 mins.
  • Add half the torn basil and half the creme fraiche to the pan.
  • Stir in the prawns and cooked pasta and allow to warm through.
  • Season to taste with salt, pepper and sugar.
  • Divide between bowls and top with cheese, remaining torn basil and a dollop of creme fraiche.
  • Finish off with a sprinkling of chilli flakes to taste.
