Fresh coriander. Stalks and leaves. Bright green flecks make everything prettier.

Plus prawns. Aren’t they wonderful? Curled and pink and perfect. They go so well with garlic and the creamy tomato sauce.

  1. YUM! That looks AMAZING. Whenever I am eating out, if they have any kind of creamy pasta prawn combination – I’m ordering it!

  2. That looks yummy!! And prawns! I’m a big prawn eater..i love them no matter how they’re cooked (unless, of course, they aren’t cleaned and washed properly or they stink..now, that’s a big turn off)
