Isabella’s Prawn Bucatini Tips & Tricks

Crafting the perfect bucatini pasta requires attention to detail; here are my tips for mastering this Italian classic:

  1. Sear the prawns just until they turn pink, ensuring they remain tender and juicy.
  2. Balance the heat of the chilli with the sweetness of the napoli sauce for a harmonious flavour profile.
  3. Toss the cooked pasta with the sauce just before serving to preserve its al dente texture.
  4. Garnish with fresh rocket to add a peppery kick and vibrant colour to the dish. With these techniques, each bite of your prawn bucatini will evoke the essence of coastal Italy.
