Prawns & Tomato Courgetti
30ml Olive Oil
25g Shallots, finely chopped
3-4 Garlic Cloves, thinly sliced
200g Tinned Chopped Tomatoes
1 Dried Red Chilli (optional)
100g (10-12) Baby Plum Tomatoes
400g Courgetti (we use the outside of the courgette and save the middle for the Leek & No-Potato Zoup!)
280-300g Raw Headless King Prawns, fresh or frozen
30g Grated Parmesan
Salt & Pepper, to taste
Add the olive oil to a medium pan and sauté the shallots over a low heat for 5-7 minutes.
Turn the heat up a little, create a well in the shallots and sprinkle in the garlic.
Cook over a low / medium heat to turn the garlic nut brown. As soon as the garlic has turned, add the tinned tomatoes, crush the chilli into the sauce and add a little water or unsweetened almond milk (no more than 100ml).
Cook gently for 10 minutes and wait for the oil to rise to the surface. Half way through, add the baby plum tomatoes.
Thinly slice the courgettes into strips.
Add the courgetti to salted, boiling water and blanch for 3-5 minutes.
Once the sauce has thickened, add the mascarpone and stir it in.
Drain the courgetti.
Add the prawns to the sauce and cook for 3-5 minutes over a medium heat.
Add the courgetti to the pan and fully combine with the prawns and sauce.
Serve in a pasta bowl with a drizzle of olive oil and shards of parmesan cheese.
