    Irmgard's Note:

    I found this recipe on another site and decided to try it. It is very easy to prepare, elegant enough for a dinner party and can be easily halved for a special dinner for two. A great way to use up leftover cooked shrimp. Serve with a side dish of steamed asparagus.

      This was simple, quick & tasty. I bought raw, shelled & deveined prawns which I stir-fried separately in a little olive oil along with some hot chilli flakes and freshly cracked black pepper. I added salt & plenty of black pepper & chilli flakes to the sauce, mixed the cooked prawns through, then added the pasta. I used bucatini, bottled pesto, & low-fat milk.

      This was very tasty. It just needed a bit more flavor in the cream sauce, so I added some salt (the pesto was homemade, and it didn't have salt) and fresh ground pepper. Otherwise, it was very good, and DH loved it. I served it with Thorstens Crispy Beer Flatbread, and it tasted wonderful with the leftover sauce. Thanks for a yummy recipe!
