King prawn linguini...

Hi All,

My husband hates prawns. And it's a real issue 😂.

One of my favourite things to eat is king prawn linguini but we always cook for the two of us as it's just annoying/wasteful to cook separately.

Can I switch out the prawns in a spicy linguini for any alternatives that would work? Preferably meat...

Also - extra points if anyone can inspire me with any other pasta recipes

If you make courgette and prawn linguine you could easily divide the sauce and substitute the prawns with slices of leftover chicken for him. That way it’d still be quick and easy.

[[ My favourite recipe]

Why don't you make him chicken linguine, but put in lots of little bits of chopped up prawns, just to see what happens!!!!! Mwahaha grin

Does he eat other seafood? We have crab linguine rather than prawn linguine due to fussy children.

@Laurie01 sneaky but I like it! I've done this with certain veg before with this kids. Stuff they "don't like" but if they can't see if don't know it's there and miraculously love!

@karmakameleon he's a bit iffy with all seafood but thinks prawns are spawn of the devil... I will most certainly suggest it! Thank you
