You can absolutely use ready made store bought pasta for this recipe but making your own pasta is so satisfying. Honestly, it was SO simple to do! I used a no machine & super easy to follow recipe from @biggerbolderbaking for the pasta itself and added some gorgeous and juicy prawns. This was such an incredible plate of food, I will absolutely be making it again - in fact, I’m salivating just thinking about it now 🤤

Serves 2


213g plain flour

2 large eggs

Splash of water

100g asparagus, chopped

20g black pitted olives, sliced

10 baby plum tomatoes, halved

10g fresh dill sprigs, finely chopped

1 tbs garlic paste

1/2 red chilli, finely sliced

1 tbs extra virgin olive oil

Lemon wedges to serve


300g king prawns, tail on

1 tbs cold pressed rapeseed oil

  1. I’ve included the ingredients for the pasta above, head over to https://www.biggerbolderbaking.com/homemade-pasta-2-ingredient/ for the method.

  2. In a separate frying pan, warm the rapeseed oil over a medium-high flame and fry the garlic for about 30 secs. Add the prawns and cook on one side for 3 mins until they have a slight char. Turn them over, add the asparagus and fresh chilli and cook for 2 mins. Add the tomatoes, olives and half the dill and cook everything for a final minute. Season.

  3. Add the freshly cooked pasta to the prawns and mix everything together well.

Garnish with the remaining fresh dill and some lemon wedges. Grab a fork and dive in fork🍴
