Recently I was lucky enough to be sent some wonderful samples from Barilla and since I received the generous package right before Easter, I decided to take advantage and use their delicious products to whip up a yummy dish for Good Friday.
Living where we do, there is always an abundance of fresh seafood available and our family favourite is Prawns. So it was the perfect chance to combine the families two favourite foods and please them all at once.... WINNING !
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 Cloves crushed garlic
1 medium onion finely chopped
2 teaspoons of dried or fresh oregano
1 teaspoon of chili flakes
1 cup Val Verde diced Italian tomatoes
1 jar Barilla Mediterranean Vegetable pasta sauce
Barilla whole grain spaghetti
In a large pot of boiling water cook the pasta to packet directions
Heat the oil in a heavy based pan, add the garlic and onion and cook until onion is soft
Add the oregano and chili and cool for a further 2 minutes
Combine the tomatoes and the Barilla pasta sauce and add to the pan, bringing sauce to a simmer
Add the prawns making sure that the sauce does not boil.
Once the prawns are cooked through, drain the pasta and add to the sauce
A healthy, delicious meal that thankfully satisfied each tummy in our family, giving the Easter Weekend a fabulous start.
Thank you ever so much Barilla
