Sautéeing with Sabulous

Cooking Healthy: Lemon Garlic Shrimp Linguine 

Don't think this blog is all about fashion- clothes wise. Fashion comes in all mediums really- even food! The way in which you plate your food or add different colors and layers in a simple dish can really make the taste explode in your mouth, which is exactly what this dish is all about. Light and refreshing with a tangy twist to it, this linguine is easy to prepare and 100% home-cooked!

You will need:
1. Butter
2. Salt and Pepper 
3. Linguine 
4. Prawns (peeled)
5. Spinach leaves (mixed salad greens)
6. Cheddar Cheese
7. Freshly squeezed lemon juice
8. Lemon zest
9. Mixed Herbs
10. Chopped chilies (optional)
11. Chopped garlic

How To: 
1. Place roughly 2 spoonfuls of butter onto sauté pan (the level of buttery-ness depends on personal preference)
2. Add 2 cloves of chopped garlic and fry till semi-cooked 
3. Add peeled prawns (about 6 for one serving) [add chilies at this point if you want spiciness] 
4. Squeeze half a lemon onto mixture 
5. Add half a lemon's worth of zest 
6. Season with salt and pepper
7. Add spinach (or salad) leaves to mixture 
8. Add cooked pasta, stir well to ensure sauce is coated on pasta
9. Garnish with herbs and Parmesan cheese
