  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 red onion, cut into thin wedges
  • 1 red pepper, deseeded and sliced
  • 150g sugar snap peas
  • 250g small courgettes, thinly sliced
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice (about 1 lemon)
  • 225g penne or fusilli pasta
  • 100g Mi-Cuit tomatoes (we like Merchant Gourmet from major supermarkets), cut into strips
  • 200g cooked and peeled prawns
  • Large handful fresh flatleaf parsley leaves, coarsely chopped
  • Large handful fresh basil leaves, torn


  1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a deep frying pan (with a tight-fitting lid) over a medium-high heat. Add the onion and stir-fry for 1 minute, until beginning to soften. Add the pepper and 1 tablespoon water, cover and cook, shaking the pan occasionally, for 3 minutes. Add the sugar snaps and courgettes and 1 tablespoon water. Re-cover and cook for another 4-5 minutes, until the vegetables are just tender. Season well and cool.
  2. Whisk the lemon juice and remaining oil together and season. Cook the pasta in a pan of boiling salted water for 10-12 minutes, until al dente. Drain well, tip into a large bowl and stir in the dressing. Cool.
  3. Mix the vegetables into the pasta, along with the tomatoes, prawns and herbs. Season to taste and serve.
