Linguine works perfectly with this creamy sauce as the sauce clings to the strands of pasta. Chunkier sauces work better with larger pasta shapes like penne or farfalle.


  1. Cook the pasta according to pack instructions. Meanwhile, heat a non-stick pan, then gently cook the peas, prawns, lemon zest and juice for 3-4 mins until prawns are hot and peas tender.

  2. Season well, stir in the cream and 2 tbsp of the pasta water, then bubble for 1 min. Drain the linguine and return to the saucepan with the sauce, tossing well to coat. Serve in bowls.
