  • 300g short pasta shapes
  • 1 head broccoli, cut into small florets
  • 200g large cooked prawns, halved
  • 3 tbsp crème fraîche or double cream
  • juice ½ lemon


  1. Cook the pasta following pack instructions, scooping out a bit of the cooking water as it cooks. Three mins before the pasta is done, add the broccoli to the pan and cook for the 3 mins more. Drain, then tip back into the pan.

  2. Reduce the heat to very low and gently stir through the prawns, crème fraîche, lemon juice and some seasoning. Add a splash of the reserved pasta water if it looks too thick, then serve when everything is really hot.
