Garlic Prawns, with Tomatoes, Moscato and Tomato Sauce and Basil

So, I had an idea for dinner tonight, and it turned out sort of alright!! Ok, maybe MORE than 'alright' and maybe more 'bloody fantastic!!

I had this idea of ingredients, prawns for protein, garlic butter sauce, and tomatoes, and then expanded it for some wine (Moscato) and basil, so I went shopping...

It was a really simple and basic dish. Starting with pasta first in a pot of gentle boiling water. Then, in a seperate pot, heated a bit of oil and pepper, added the tomatoes (a mix of Sorento Cherry Tomatoes and a tub of mixed cherry tomatoes) until just softened, and beginning to breakdown. I then added the prawns and garlic butter knobs, until the butter had just melted, then adding in the satchel of tomato paste and a 1/2 cup of the wine; Moscato.

When the pasta was just shy of being 'Al dente', I then added the basil into the pot to wilt down, and drained the pasta. Returned the pasta to the pot it was in, and poured over the prawn dish with sauce, and stirred softly, and served it up with a glass of the wine!!

Next time, and there will most certainly be a next time, I will use a slightly different, less sweet wine, and maybe even add in a chilli for a bit of a kick, but I was really impressed with how it turned out!!!

Hoo roo for now...
