  • Fill and boil your kettle.

-Halve the chilli lengthways, deseed and finely chop.

-Finely chop the chives. TIP: If you've got a pair of sharp kitchen scissors they'll make short work of the chives!

  • Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).

-Pour the boiling water into a large saucepan on high heat and bring back to the boil.

Halve the lemon.

  • Add the veggie stock pot to your pan of water and stir to dissolve.

-Add the spaghetti, bring to the boil and cook for 8 mins.

-When the pasta is cooked, reserve some cooking stock (see ingredients for amount) then drain the spaghetti into a colander.

  • Meanwhile, heat a splash of oil in a frying pan on medium-high heat.

  • Add the pancetta and a pinch of chilli and cook, stirring, until is golden, 2-3 mins.

  • Add the prawns, cook for 2 mins.

  • Add the garlic and mix through. Cook for another minute.

  • Add the reserved pasta stock to the sauce.

    • Turn the heat to low and add the creme fraiche and half of the chives.

    • Stir and simmer until the prawns are cooked through and the sauce is piping hot, another 2-3 mins.

-IMPORTANT: The prawns are cooked when pink on the outside and opaque in the centre.


-Stir the drained pasta into your sauce and gently mix.

  • Add a squeeze of lemon juice and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Serve the pasta in bowls and finish with a sprinkle of the remaining chives and chilli. Top with some rocket. Tuck in!
