Creamy Prawn and Parsley Pasta

Creamy Prawn and Parsley Pasta

As a mother I’m very pleased to announce that we love prawns in our house. My son Ted, who is nine, loves a prawn meal. Ted gets very excited when I announce that we are having prawns for dinner. My husband Howard who isn’t the biggest fish fan also likes prawns. Therefore I know when I cook a meal like this one there will be no complaints.

Also as a mum it pleased me that my little family enjoy a prawn or two. There are lots of health benefits to eating prawns. Prawns are packed with B vitamins, they are also full of iron and they are rich in selenium. Eating prawns can help to build healthy bones because they also contain phosphorous, copper and magnesium. If you or your family like fish then this is a great dish that’s packed with goodness. It’s a meal I’m sure we will be eating again very soon.

Creamy Prawn and Parsley Pasta

Creamy Prawn and Parsley Pasta was a big hit with my little family. It’s a very quick and easy dish to prepare and cook. You could also make double of the sauce and freeze it for another occasion. Although I personally think this dish is better cooked fresh. It’s a great meal to serve to the family or to friends who love prawns. You can eat this meal as leftovers the next day too. However you decide to eat this dinner, as always, please enjoy. Thank you xxx
