Spaghetti with Pesto and Prawns
Oxford started off a bit grey and chilly this morning, but by late afternoon, the sun was shining, it was warm, and I wanted something sunny and happy for my tea. I had some home-made pesto left over from the bruschetta at the weekend (why do people buy ready-made pesto? It is horrid, and the home-made is soooo much nicer), so simply boiled spaghetti, and in the last couple of minutes, sauteed prawns and a skinned, chopped tomato in olive oil, and stirred the whole lot together, with a little of the pasta cooking water. The tomato dissolved, sadly, but it still contributed to the overall flavour. Next time, I'd add it at the very last second. But, all in all, a lovely light, fragrant dish for our tea.
