Pan Fried Prawns

If you are after a super easy, comforting dish to share with the family this winter, this is the dish for you. A jar of MUTTI Sugo Semplice Basil does all the work, no need to chop onions as they are already in the sauce, but by keeping on as many prawn heads and tails on the prawns, you get a lovely depth of flavour to the final dish. Don’t skimp on the fresh herbs either, they really make the dish sing!
