Prep: 1 min > Cook: 9 min > Ready to eat: 10 min

  1. Heat a saucepan, add a small cube of butter, olive oil and then throw in the finely chopped garlic. Allow this to cook for a few seconds and then add the cherry tomatoes. Let it all blend nicely in the butter mixture.
  2. Now add pasta, salt and water, mix it well and let it cook for 7 minutes. Further tip: if your pasta looks a bit dry, add a little bit of water, not too much just to keep to moist.
  3. Throw in the raw prawns, basil leaves, season it with chilli flakes, pepper and cook for a further two minutes.
  4. The pasta is ready, add parmesan and another teaspoon of olive oil and this is ready to be served.
