New Life New Meals

I have decided to put up new meals that I have tried ones that I feel you all can eat,

Tonight’s meal,  been a long time since I cooked prawns, and I do have to say I choose a great meal to start cooking them again. I make my own pasta as often as I can, sometimes time just doesn’t let me but it isn’t the same. This is a really quick meal to make, peppadew peppers are new to me I had no clue what they were, the ones I got were hot but sweet, I could imagine having them with brie and crackers, have just taken my taste bud to a whole new level, but I am eating healthy so that wont be happening too often.  Any way here is the recipe I hope you all enjoy it as much as we did.
