Garlic & Chilli Prawn Pasta

This is one from my dad - he LOVES this type of pasta! It's light, but packs a punch with flavour! 

1 brown onion, diced
1 long red chill, diced and deseeded 
3-4 garlic cloves, crushed 
1/4 cup chopped parsley
4 tbsp. olive oil 
3 tbsp. olive oil (for cooking)
250g spaghetti, uncooked
200g uncooked tail on prawns
Salt and pepper to taste. 


  1. Cook pasta according to packet instructions. 
  2. In a non-stick pan, heat olive oil over medium to high heat. 
  3. Once hot, add onion, garlic, chilli, and parsley to the pan and cook for 3-5 minutes, or until onion is translucent. 
  4. Add prawns to the pan, and cook for 4-6 minutes, or until they're cooked through.  
  5. Add the cooked pasta into the pan and toss through. Season with salt and pepper to taste 
  6. Add parmesan and more parsley to top with!
