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.
- Cook the linguine in boiling salted water for 6 mins, add the soya beans and cook for a further 4 mins until the linguine is just tender.
- Meanwhile, heat the oil in a frying pan. Add the garlic and prawns and cook, stirring for 5-6 mins until the prawns turns pink and are cooked through.
- Drain the linguine and soya beans and add the prawns in the pan with the sweet chilli sauce. Stir well to coat and serve straightaway.

- 150g (5oz) frozen soya beans
