King Prawn Linguine

This is my go-to 10minute meal when I don't feel like cooking. There's very little cooking involved so its my version of fast food. Switching my usual spaghetti for Linguine and my usual basic prawns for King Prawns makes this just a little bit special. The creaminess of the soft cheese pairs really well with the Linguine(little tongues) as its known making the sauce rich and silky. This recipe is for 2 people but can easily be adapted to feed 4. 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
