Ingredients
  • 300g pack Asda Chosen by you Frozen North Atlantic Prawns, defrosted
  • 300g spaghetti
  • 2 large eggs, yolks only
  • 75ml reduced-fat crème fraîche
  • 1 lemon, juice and finely grated zest
  • 25g Parmesan, grated
  • 325g frozen peas
Method
  • Drain any excess water from the prawns and pat dry with a kitchen towel.

  • Add the spaghetti to a large pan of salted, boiling water, stir gently, then simmer for 8 minutes.

  • While the spaghetti is cooking, mix the egg yolks and crème fraîche with the lemon juice and grated zest, and half of the Parmesan, in a bowl.

  • Add the peas to the spaghetti, bring back to the boil and simmer for another 2-4 minutes until the pasta is soft but firm. Drain and return to the pan.

  • Add the prawns to the spaghetti and peas, toss and warm through over a low heat for 1-2 minutes. Turn off the heat and stir in the egg yolk mixture. The heat from the spaghetti will gently cook the sauce. Garnish with the rest of the Parmesan and black pepper.
