Green Pasta with Prawns

I came up with this dish after sorting between the wierd collection of ingredients that were in my fridge and then putting them together in a way that I am pleased to say- worked! I know this dish is going to sound very wierd to a lot of you but do please try it, you will love it I promise!

Marinade: 2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp white wine
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp chopped fresh mint
5 cloves garlic, chopped
½ lb fresh prawns, skinned and headed
2 tbsp Olive oil
6 cloves garlic (chopped)
½ glass white wine
2 cups frozen peas
1 lettuce (roughly torn)
1 cup cream
1 cucumber (diced and steamed)
4 avocadoes (diced)
10 oz pasta shapes (cooked al dente)
¼ Red onion (thinly sliced)
1 cup crumbled blue cheese
2 tbsp freshly chopped chives
1 tbsp freshly chopped mint

1, Place all the marinade ingredients into a bowl. Place the prawns in the marinade and leave over night to marinate.

2, Heat the live oil in a large wok. Remove the prawns from the marinade, and place in the wok. Fry the prawns gently until they become almost tender add the garlic, and fry a little more. Add the white wine and peas, cook until the peas are tender. Add the lettuce and the cream and cook for a further 3 minutes.

3, Remove from the heat, stir in the cucumber and avocado. Toss with the pasta shapes. Sprinkle on the red onion blue cheese and herbs. Serve straight away.
