Prawns and Creamy Linguine Recipe for a Valentine’s Dinner

With Valentine’s Day falling onto a week day this year it’s no doubt you’re having a cosy night in.

Below is a lovely dinner for two recipe that’s full of prawns and a creamy sauce that covers the tasty linguine. I love this idea because it’s quick to make and is something out of the ordinary as well. I hope you have a fantastic evening with you and your special Valentine.

  • 250g linguine
  • 200g prawns
  • half a red onion
  • 150g baby mushrooms
  • 2 tsp garlic paste
  • 150g double cream
  • 100g white wine
  • oregano, salt and pepper to taste
  • parmesan for sprinkling

Cooking Method:

  1. Fry onions and garlic until softened (2-4 mins)
  2. Stir in sliced mushrooms and cook on low heat for 10 mins
  3. Add double cream, wine and prawns and cook on high heat for 3 mins, uncovered. Set aside.
  4. Cook the linguine by placing it in a separate pan with boiling water for 8-10 mins. Then, add the linguine to the prawns and mix well. Cook together for another 5 mins.
  5. Serve with parmesan sprinkled on top.

It takes about 30 minutes overall and tastes creamy and delicious.

It’s the perfect romantic dinner idea for a special Valentine’s Day night in.
