One word delicious I scaled back for 2 serves but DH called to say he was running really late and for me to go ahead and cook dinner he would grab some card board calories so had already prepped for two so went ahead and made but only cooked enough pasta for one so now have prawns left over for lunch tomorrow, lucky me and oh I think I forgot to mention absolutely delicious.
