Penne with prawns and fra diavolo sauce


Fra diavolo, "brother devil" in Italian, is a spicy sauce for pasta or seafood. Ramp up the heat with extra chilli if you like.

You'll need

500 gm dried penne 60 ml (¼ cup) olive oil 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped 1 tbsp rosemary 24 uncooked prawns, peeled, deveined and coarsely chopped 3 birdseye chillies, or to taste, finely chopped 600 gm tomato polpa To serve: coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley   Toasted crumbs 80 gm sourdough crumbs 20 gm butter 1½ tbsp olive oil 1 garlic clove, crushed

Method

  • 01
  • Cook penne in a saucepan of well-salted boiling water until al dente (10-14 minutes), then drain, reserving a little pasta water.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, for toasted crumbs, combine ingredients except garlic in a large deep frying pan over medium heat until toasted, stirring in garlic in the last minute (4-5 minutes). Transfer to a plate and wipe out pan.
  • 03
  • Heat olive oil in pan over medium heat, sauté garlic and rosemary until fragrant (1-2 minutes), then add prawns and chillies and stir until just starting to turn opaque (1 minute). Add polpa, bring to a simmer, season to taste and simmer until sauce is well flavoured, and prawns are cooked (2-3 minutes).
