Pasta Arrabiata with Prawns

Very easy pasta recipe. I like it because the sauce is light compare to creamy or bolognese sauce. And the chilli flakes just make it perfect. I love spicy food (I’m sure you know that by now ^^).

I used to eat this often when I was working in Singapore. I fell in love with this sauce since then 🙂

I read a bit about this sauce. Most of them use pancetta, but I dunno how I can substitute that one ingredient. So I just decided to put in some prawns (my hubby doesn’t fancy vegetarian food much :P) And to be honest, I don’t like short pasta that much (penne, macaroni etc) except fusilli and orzo (orzo is sooooooo cute, it tasted a bit funky for me too, looked like rice but when you expect rice-taste you’ll get pasta-taste instead). I dunno why I’m very picky with my pasta, I think they taste different (hubby insists they taste the same). Spaghetti and linguine I like the most, and always have any of them ready in my kitchen.


300g pasta

1 can chopped tomato (400g)

4 garlic cloves, finely chopped

1 small onion, finely chopped

200g prawns

1 tbsp chilli flakes (optional, depending on your taste)

2 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp fresh basil, thinly sliced

salt & pepper


How to:

– In a cold large pan / pot, add olive oil , onion and garlic. Turn on the heat.

– Add your tomato and chilli flakes, bring it to the boil.

– Add salt and pepper.

– Now you can add your prawns, stir and turn off the heat. Let the remaining heat in the sauce to cook the prawns.

– Serve with your pasta and grated parmesan.
