Spicy Garlic Prawn Spaghetti

I love easy peasy recipes. Who doesn’t? I had prawns in the freezer and I wanted a quick one that would be good enough for the blog.

Being a MasterChef Australia fan, I remembered one of the contestants Marion Grasby and how she loves to make quick fusion food. Chanced upon this recipe and Voila here it is Spicy Garlic Prawn Spaghetti.

My daughter must have told me a few times to add this to her list of favourites.
