This was absolutely delicious and it was created on a night that I wasn't sure we were actually going to get fed!! I had been flat out all day and I was heading out early for an event in the evening so it was a last minute chuck together and use what I had available sort of meal. I was so pleased it worked sooo well!! I'll be honest I am working from memory with the cooking times for the pasta because it appears I threw out my scribbles so just check the pasta in the end to make sure it is cooked. It will continue to soften in the Thermoserver and the sauce will thicken as well. If you are not a prawn person then you could definitely use chicken but I would add it when you saute the onions and then make sure you only use REVERSE speed. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
