Fresh linguine with prawns and kale


I'm really enjoying this fresh linguine from my local gourmet food market, so much better than the dried packet stuff. There are so many possibilities with pasta, this recipe used what I had on hand at home. Delicious!

300gms raw prawns, fresh or frozen...thaw first if frozen
150gms fresh linguine
small bunch green curly kale, chopped into strips
juice and rind of a lemon
1 clove garlic, sliced
1 small fresh red chilli, seeds removed and sliced
olive oil

Serves 2

Cook pasta according to instructions, should only need 3-5 minutes if it's fresh

Heat a glug of good quality olive oil in a wok or large saucepan, and add garlic. Fry for a minute or so and add kale and a splash of water. Stir for a couple of minutes and add chilli and lemon rind. Once the kale has nearly wilted, add prawns and toss until they have turned pink. Add the cooked and rained pasta to the wok and toss with the juice of a lemon and another couple of glugs of olive oil. Serve with some chopped fresh chilli on top
