New Series! Kitchen Chronicles : Garlic Prawn Linguine

A different kind of post today I just couldn't let this one go, I miss my cooking days! I've gotten so caught up with work and planning a few events that I cannot for the life of me remember the last time I had time to really indulge in some therapeutic kitchen time. Well this weekend just gone I wasn't about to let my hour of free time go to waste, I took a trip to my local supermarket and picked up some of the ingredients below. This was the most beautiful garlic prawn dish I have ever made! I often throw garlic into my pasta dishes because it flavours so beautiful and of course is healthy!

Plus I'm now a new Basil fan, I had no idea just how much of a difference it could make to the taste of the dish! Anyway enough drooling over my now empty plate... Here goes the recipe... Enjoy!!!

  • 1 onion
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 5 vine ripened tomatoes
  • 5 sprigs of fresh basil [chopped]
  • 225g jumbo king prawns
