Recipe: Stole My Heart Prawn Pasta

Mr P is an incredible cook it's one of the things I absolutely love and admire about him, his ability to whip up a restaurant quality meal for just the two of us at home. 

I’ll never forget the first time Mr P cooked a pot of his creamy prawn pasta for me .... I can still taste the mouthfuls now the chilli cutting through the cream, freshness of the parsley and perfectly cooked prawns. 

It was absolutely divine and I fall in love with him all over again whenever he makes this dish which is why I call it Stole My Heart Prawn Pasta.
