This dish is perfect for lunch or dinner as its so quick and easy. The combination of garlic,mushrooms and pasta is a base for most of my quick and easy dinners I must admit. I've added prawns but you can easily use chicken or chorizo instead or just leave it out all together. The choice is yours. Why not give this a try and let us know how you got on in the comments below. We love to hear your feedback x
