Lj's Skinny Garlic Prawn Pasta





Ingredients:

10 Medium Green Prawns (Peeled & Cleaned) 
1 Packet of Slendier Slim Spaghetti
1 Tin of Light and Creamy Carnation Milk
1 Tablespoon of Cornflour
1 Thick slice of Fresh Lemon plus a squeeze more of the juice
2 Fresh Garlic Cloves finely chopped
Fresh Chopped Parsley
Sprinkle of Parmesan if you wish to serve.


What to do:

Heat a non stick pan and add the Garlic and Lemon. Prepare the spaghetti as per the packet instructions (takes about 2 minutes, it is basically drain, rinse, throw in boiling water for a minute then drain again)
Add the prawns cooking on one side until you can just see them starting to change colour then flip them over. Add half of the carnation milk, extra squeeze of Lemon and bring to a simmer. Mix the cornflour well into the other half of the Carnation milk and add to the pan. Stir while simmering until the sauce is thick and add the parsley right at the end. Season with Cracked Pepper and Seas Salt. I like to use Murray River Salt Flakes. Turn off the heat and mix through the pasta.. Sprinkle with Parmesan if you wish.  That's it! Pretty much healthy dinner in under 15 minutes if that including prep time. 

Slendier is not for everyone, if you don't like it cook regular pasta before you start cooking the prawns. Rice spaghetti is also a nice alternative. Either way it is still a much healthier alternative to traditional creamy pasta :-)
