Magazines are a bit more expensive
down here than in the States so I really have to stick to the 'yes Nate, I'll make at least one recipe from this magazine' idea. Donna Hay is easily becoming a go-to for my recipes (I only have two magazines but they are GOOD!). I was a bit thrown off by the spaghetti noodles at first, but this dish turned out great! We'll be adding it to our menu rotation.

Chilli, Lemon and Prawn Pasta from Donna Hay
Serves 4
400g spaghetti | I used the KitchenAid Fresh Pasta recipe
40g unsalted butter, chopped
1 Tbls extra virgin olive oil
4 glove garlic, through a garlic press
1 long red chilli, thinly sliced
1 Tbls finely shredded lemon zest
600g raw (green) prawns (shrimp), peeled, deveined and roughly chopped
salt and pepper, to taste
1 cup watercress sprigs, to serve

food. fresh pasta.

I've (finally) been able to make use of my
birthday gift! So far, my KitchenAid pasta attachments have been amazing and delicious. First step - make fresh pasta from a very simple recipe. KitchenAid's The Ultimate Mixer Cookbook has been helpful so far. Below is the basic pasta recipe I've used a few times. If you have a suggested recipe or tips on how to make/store fresh pasta, I'd love to hear them! Feel free to leave a comment on the blog, Facebook or tweet it to me. Enjoy!
