Created on 28th Apr 2017

A light and tasty pasta dish which really highlights the youthful deliciousness of our olio nuovo. You can mix things up by adding olives, capers or perhaps some sliced, sun-dried tomatoes.

The ingredients and instructions for Spicy Prawn and Tomato Spaghetti are as follows:


Serves 4

4-5 tbsp Pomora olio nuovo
1 garlic clove, chopped
1 red chilli, deseeded, finely chopped
6 tomatoes, chopped
1 heaped tsp tomato purée
2 heaped tbsp crème fraîche
2 handfuls of parsley, chopped
Squeeze of lemon juice
400g cooked, peeled prawns
Pinch of brown sugar to taste
340g spaghetti
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


1. Put the spaghetti into a pan of salted, boiling water and cook for 8-10 minutes until al dente. Drain and toss in 2-3 tbsp of Pomora olio nuovo.

2. While the spaghetti is cooking, heat 2 tbsp of the Pomora olio nuovo in a large pan over a medium heat and cook the garlic and chilli for 2 minutes. Add the chopped tomatoes and cook for a further 5 minutes.

3. Stir in the tomato purée, crème fraîche, parsley, lemon juice and some salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer and cook for 3-4 minutes so that the sauce thickens. Add the prawns and bring back to a simmer to heat through.

4. With the sauce still on a medium heat, add the cooked spaghetti and toss well to allow the pasta a chance to absorb some of the sauce. Serve with an extra squeeze of lemon juice and a sprinkling of parsley.

The recipe for Spicy Prawn and Tomato Spaghetti uses Pomora olio nuovo.
