  • Cook the pasta according to the pack instructions. Drain and return to the pan.

  • Heat a griddle pan to hot; toss the prawns in the oil and cook for 5 mins or until piping hot with char marks.

  • Meanwhile, use a spiraliser to cut the courgette into noodles, or use a veg peeler to shave into ribbons.

  • Gently toss the pasta with the courgetti and the lemon juice. The heat from the pan will soften the courgetti.
