I love cooking. It’s how I switch off. Last night i made what is probably my signature dish – spaghetti a gamberetti.
Boil the spaghetti. Finely chop a few cloves of garlic and de-seeded chilies. Juice and zest a lemon. Place the sun-dried tomatoes in a blender for a few mins.
Add some extra virgin olive oil to a large pan and gently fry the garlic and chillies. After a minute or two add the prawns and gently fry untlil they turn pink.
Add the wine (about a glass) and the sun-dried tomato paste and simmer for a fdew minutes.
Meanwhile drain the spaghetti and add to the pan. Turn off the heat throw in some roughly chopped rocket, lemon juice and zest. Mix it through a little before serving.
I like to use a Pinot Grigio with this dish – it also goes down rather nicely with it. Give it a try and let me know what you think. Bon appetito!
I must admit my partner, Emma, loves this dish. We’ve some fond memories of candle-lit dinners in the kitchen – very romantic.
