410 g tin chopped tomatoes
2 garlic cloves, peeled
5 fresh sage leaves
1 red chilli, roughly chopped
1 tsp (5 ml) sugar
1 Tbsp (15 ml) olive oil

250 g fresh tagliatelle
3 Tbsp (45 ml) butter
2 Tbsp (30 ml) olive oil
250 g whole prawns
350 g vine tomatoes
250 g cooked mussels
30 g Parmesan, grated

micro basil for garnishing

In a small saucepan, bring the tinned tomatoes, garlic, fresh sage, chopped chilli, sugar and olive oil to a gentle simmer. Cook for 20 minutes, adjust the seasoning and then set aside until ready to use.

Bring a large saucepan filled with salted water to the boil and cook the pasta for 5 minutes, or until al dente.

While the pasta is cooking, heat a large frying pan over a high heat and add the butter and oil. Fry the prawns for 2 minutes on each side, they should be pink in colour and crisp. Remove and set aside. While the pan is still hot add the tomatoes and flash fry until they begin to blister.

Return the prawns to the pan, add the mussels, tomato sauce and drained cooked pasta. Toss everything together, and season to taste.

Serve with Parmesan and garnish with fresh micro basil.
