Water for the Sauce
Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil with 1/2 tsp salt.
When boiling, add the rigatoni to the water and bring back to the boil. Cook until tender, 12 mins.
Once cooked, drain in a colander and pop back in the pan. Drizzle with oil and stir through to stop it sticking together.
Meanwhile, peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
Drain the prawns. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw prawns.
Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on medium-high heat.
Once hot, add the garlic and Cajun spice mix (add less if you'd prefer things milder) and fry until fragrant, 1 min.
Once fragrant, stir through the creme fraiche, vegetable stock paste, sugar and water for the sauce (see pantry for both amounts). Season with salt and pepper.
Bring the sauce to a boil, then lower to a simmer until thickened, 3-4 mins.
Stir in the prawns into the pan and cook for another 5-6 mins. IMPORTANT: They're cooked when pink on the outside and opaque in the middle.
Once the prawns are cooked, stir through the peas, cooked pasta and butter for the sauce (see pantry for amount) until the butter has melted, 1 min more.
Taste and season with salt and pepper if you feel it needs it.
