Linguine- prawn and roasted cherry tomato recipe

One of our favourite pastas at Sydneycool is linguine and when you combine it with ripe roasted tomatoes, fresh prawns, a pinch or two of chilli flakes and garlic on a cold winters night at home – it hits the spot. So here’s sydneycool’s linguine recipe. All you need to make life better at this point is a glass of your favourite tipple – one of our favourites with this is – Primo Estate D’Elena Pinot Grigio.  This recipe makes two generous serves.

You’ll need:

250 gm of linguine (quality dried pasta like De Cecco or top of the range – Martelli)

2 packets of vine ripened cherry truss tomatoes (very ripe – about 400 gm)

16 – 20 green prawns depending on size (cleaned with tails on)

1 tsp dried chilli flakes (peperoncino – from your local deli)

3 cloves of garlic (chopped fine-ish)

4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (we love Joseph First Run Olive Oil by Primo Estate)

pepper and salt to highlight flavours.

In a baking tray, place tomatoes (still on their stalks) with 2 tbs of olive oil, salt and cracked black pepper over tomatoes. Bake at 200 degrees celsius for 20 minutes or until skins are blistered with a little colour, and they’ve softened – let cool.

In the meantime, bring a large pot with lots of water to a full boil, add a good shake of cooking salt, then add pasta to full boiling water, stir pasta around the water a few times and cook to instructions on the packet, stirring every couple of minutes.

In a large frying pan on very low heat, add 2 tbsps of oil, garlic and chilli flakes. Cook gently until garlic is translucent and soft, with no colour and chilli is fragrant (4 to 5 minutes – don’t burn or colour the garlic).

Then add your prawns and roasted tomatoes (which you’ve removed from stalks) with juices from baking tray.
