How to Cook Perfect Pasta


Heat the oil in a large frypan and sauté the garlic and prawns for 3-4 minutes until the prawns turn pink.

Cook the pasta in boiling salted water for 3-4 minutes until just al dente. Drain.

Add the pasta to the prawns and toss together in the pan. Add the cream, rocket, lemon juice and zest, capers and dill. Bring to a simmer and cook for 2 minutes until the sauce is thick and creamy. Season with freshly ground black pepper. Serve immediately with the lemon wedges.
