A very tasty creamy pasta dish, good for cooking when you have company. Be careful though, you may have too much fettucine per sauce quantity so if this is the case, do not use all the fettucine as it will take away the richness of the sauce. Another alternative is to use rice as the base rather than the pasta.
- 750 g peeled uncooked large shrimp
- 1 bunch spring onion, sliced
- 6 garlic cloves, crushed
- 150 -200 ml thickened cream

- Add prawns and toss through until cooked.
- Add white wine and stock and mix through.
- Add cream slowly, mixing through until you get desired quantity but not too much otherwise it will taste of all cream.

Was looking for a good recipe for a festive dinner and this one is perfect. Thanks.
Wonderful romantic meal my DH loved the prawns and he loves cream sauce added lots of fresh Parmesan cheese to the cream sauce instead of the cornmeal to thicken and we BBQ the prawns in the spring onions, garlic my DH's idea. We did forgo the rolls as we had cheesecake for dessert with a chocolate & raspberry liquor. I want to make this again without BBQ'ing the prawns.Very good!
