Servings 4


  • 270 grams garlic prawns - we used Kailis ones.
  • 300 grams penne pasta
  • 2 punnets cherry or baby roma tomatoes
  • 200 grams danish feta
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • ¼ cup parsley - roughly chopped
  • ¼ cup basil - roughly chopped
  • 120 grams baby spinach


  • Preheat oven to 200C
  • In a large baking dish place the feta, tomatoes and garlic and season with salt and pepper. Place in oven and bake for 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, cook the pasta. In a large pot of boiling salted water cook pasta for 8-10 minutes or until al dente. Reserve 1 cup of pasta water, drain and set aside.
  • Heat a large fry pan on medium high heat on stove. Add garlic prawns and cook for a 1-2 minutes each side until cooked through.
  • Remove baking dish from oven. Using a fork squish tomatoes, feta and garlic. Add pasta and enough reserved pasta water to loosen and form a creamy sauce. Stir though spinach, parsley and basil. Season to taste.
  • To serve, divide pasta among plates and top with garlic prawns.
