Baby Marrow Spaghetti with prawns ๐Ÿ๐Ÿค

Recently when I was shopping in Woolies I purchased baby marrow spaghetti, it’s basically strings of baby marrow that look identical to pasta. I decided to try it out and it was Devine! An amazing substitute for pasta if you’re trying to cut out carbs. I basically cooked my prawns in a sauce as I would when cooking a normal pasta and then added in the baby marrow a few minutes before serving.

  
Ingredients:

1 packet baby marrow spaghetti from Woolworths

1 cup of prawns deveined without shells

Handful of frozen peas and corn

1teaspoon crushed garlic paste

1teaspoon salt

1teaspoon Chilli powder

Half teaspoon black pepper

2 green chillies finely sliced 

1tablespoon tomato puree 

200ml fresh cream
Method:

  1. Put a deep, large frying pan on the stove on medium heat with some ghee or oil.
  2. Cook prawns with the garlic, all the dry spices, frozen peas, corn and green chillies for about 2 minutes.
  3. Add in the fresh cream and tomato puree. Let it simmer for a minute.
  4. Then lastly add in the baby marrow spaghetti and mix with the prawns and sauce mixture until nicely coated.
  5. If it’s too dry or not enough sauce you can add more fresh cream. 
  6. Let the baby marrow simmer and cook in the sauce for about 3 to 4 minutes and serve immediately.
