Prawn Pasta

I credit my sister in law for introducing me to this Gordon Ramsay recipe from his book The F Word. When I first tasted it, I was just dying for more! Even though this is a white sauce pasta, it is light and I can guarantee you will find yourself serving up a second plate after polishing the first. This dish is something you would expect to see on the menu of a fancy cafe and pay premium dollars. Now, you can enjoy it in the comfort of your home. Just don’t forget the vino…
