- Boil a large pot of salted water for the rigatoni.
- When boiling, add the rigatoni and bring back to the boil.
- Cook until softened, 12 mins.
- Once cooked, drain in a colander and pop back in the pot, off the heat.
- Drizzle with oil and stir through to prevent sticking.
TIP: If you’re in a hurry you can boil the water in your kettle.
- Meanwhile, trim the courgette, halve lengthways and slice into 1cm thick semicircles.
- Roughly chop the parsley (stalks and all).
- Zest half the lemon (double for 4p). Cut into thick wedges.
- Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
- Place a large pan over high heat (without oil).
- Once hot, cook the courgette until starting to brown, shifting as it colours, 6-8 mins.
- Add the garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1 min.
- Once the courgette has browned, reduce the heat.
- Add the creme fraiche, 50ml water (double for 4p) and stock powder to the pan.
- Season with salt and pepper and stir to combine.
- Bring to a simmer and cook until the sauce has thickened slightly, 3-4 mins.
- Stir the prawns into the sauce.
- Simmer until the prawns are cooked through, 4-5 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw prawns. Prawns are cooked when pink on the outside and opaque in the middle.
- Add another splash of water if the sauce needs loosening.
- Meanwhile, mix together the lemon zest and parsley in a small bowl.
- Toss the drained rigatoni in the sauce.
- Season to taste with a squeeze of lemon juice, salt and pepper.
- Divide the pasta between bowls and garnish with the lemon and parsley topping.
- Serve any remaining lemon wedges on the side for squeezing over.
