This
delicious pasta dish is really cheap and easy to make. It is an original,
exciting recipe which is a culmination of hearty Italian and fragrant Thai
ingredients, substituting noodles for thin, flat linguine. The pre-made sweet
chilli sauce is a key store cupboard staple that is great as a dipping sauce
for starters, and works fantastically here as a pasta sauce. Frozen soya beans
are a healthy and filling addition to the sauce, and alongside the prawns are a
fantastic source of protein. Be sure to keep a bag of the soya beans in the
freezer, as they are a quick healthy addition to summer meals, and work wonderfully
in a healthy mixed bean salad or with Asian inspired cod or salmon. This is an amazing new
recipe to try, which is a cheap way to feed friends and family and perfect as a
light supper. Alternatively, you could enjoy the leftovers for lunch in a cold
pasta salad the next day – but make sure not to reheat the prawns.
