Who has time on a busy weeknight to cook an elaborate 10 step recipe with sides? 100%, not me!

Which is why I love creating meals that are quick and easy but are still super delicious, and of course healthy


You’ll only need 8 ingredients for this one, and two of those are salt and pepper… so it’s really a very simple recipe!

Although it’s simple, you could also totally impress some dinner party guests with this seafood pasta, a glass of wine and some garlic bread. What a combo 😍



I’ve used prawns, but you could use any type of seafood, like squid, scallops, or mix seafood, whichever you prefer or is on sale.

If you’re gluten-free, use gluten-free pasta and ensure your seafood isn’t coated in anything

It’s very un-Italian, but I also add a sprinkle of parmesan cheese on top!


Meal prep:

This seafood pasta recipe works great for meal prep. Make a batch at the start of the week for lunches, or have delicious leftovers from dinner. Store the portions in airtight containers in the fridge for up to 4-5 days.


A healthy quick and easy seafood pasta recipe, perfect for meal prep and can be made gluten free
