- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 clove garlic, thinly sliced
- 2 spring onions, finely sliced
- 1 red capsicum, thinly sliced

- 1 ½ cups (180g) raw prawns, thawed if frozen, peeled and tails removed
- 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved

1 In a large pot of boiling water, cook tagliatelle for 6-8 minutes, until al dente. Drain, reserving a cup of pasta water.
