You'd never thing peanuts and prawns would go so well together but they do. In pasta you can create a kind of oriental twist with an Italian pasta base, we use a delicious gluten free pasta, but make sure you cook it so it's al dente otherwise you may find it goes a bit mushy! If you love peanuts you'll love this.
