    Just made this based on a dish I had a Zizzi's and it was YUM! Really lovely rich tasting tomato sauce with a bit of a kick. The longer you leave it to simmer the better, but 10/15 mins is enough. To really get a nice flavour in the sauce, I used olive oil and sugar, but you could use fry light and sweetener if you wanted it to be syn free!

    Serves 2 - 3.5 syns per person on Red, Green or EE as long as using Prawns as HE on a Green day, (or 0.5 syns if you use oil as HE)

    1 tbsp olive oil (6)
    Half an onion
    1 large clove garlic
    1 fresh red chilli, chopped and deseeded
    1 red pepper, chopped and deseeded
    1 can plum tomatoes
    1 tbsp tomato puree
    1 tsp sugar (1)
    300g tiger prawns
    Salt

    Chop the onion and garlic very finely. Heat the oil, fry the onion and garlic for 5 mins, stirring, then add chilli and stir for further 2 mins. Add chopped red pepper - another 2 mins. Add plum tomatoes and tomato puree, mash up the tomatoes with your wooden spoon to release the juice (less bitter than just using chopped tomatoes). Add sugar and pinch of salt, and leave to simmer on a low heat for 10/15 mins. Add ready-cooked prawns for last 5 mins.

    Serve with a pile of linguine on a green day using prawns as HEB!

    Well I must say, this may become my favourite SW recipe. I just made this for tea and it tasted just like Zizi's. Thank you so much for this recipe. Everyone must try it, I was wondering if it was worth using a healthy extra for, but it so is.

    The sauce is simmering away as I type and smells delicious. Have had to put in 2 tsps of sugar though as it was bitter.

    Just thought I'd bump up this recipe - it's really delicious and we've made it a few times now!

    Try using tinned cherry tomatoes instead of plum tomatoes - they look great and taste gorgeous!

    Ooh i'm definitely going to try this!! Thank you :D
    I was just watching Gino on this morning making crab linguine and was wondering if there was a SW recipe, as i LOVE anything a little bit spicy, so this is ideal!
    I'll be making it without the meat, but sure it'll still be yummy!

    I've had this at Zizzi's as well & replicated it at home, but used sweetener, Frylight & fresh tomato's.......so completely Syn free on Extra Easy & used a Hex for grated cheese sprinkled on the top

    I adapted the recipe a bit to fit in with what I had in the fridge.
    it was lovely.
    1/2 onion , i had spring onions so used 4, finely chopped with a Clove of garlic, Fry for 5 mins, add 1 redchilli chopped, after 2 mins add a chopped red pepper and another 2 mins add a tin of plum tomatoes, and a tbsp Tom puree. I used half large carton of passata and a dozen cherry toms chopped into quarters and Tom puree. Add teasp of sugar or sweetener, pinch salt and simmer 10 mins. Then add prawns for 5 mins. Boil linguine or noodles then add to prawns
