Pasta. My go to quickie meal when I’m not feeling for masses amount of starch or effort. One of my fave combos are prawn and halal style chorizo sausage. If you haven’t checked out my skewers using this delicious combo check it out here.
This recipe is so quick and easy, great for school nights and busy days, yet full of flavour. I love the sweet subtlety of the prawns together with the spicy garlicky sausage, in rich & creamy tomato sauce and a topping of oozey mozzarella cheese, its lip smackingly good!
