Since the cooking time for this dish is quick, cut all the vegetables ahead of time. Try to have the pasta done at the same time as the vegetables.

Ingredients

Preparation

Heat a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil and the prawns. Cook 1 to 2 minutes until the prawns change color. Remove prawns, add the remaining olive oil, asparagus and garlic. Toss for 30 seconds. Add red pepper and zucchini. Stir and cook for 2 minutes. Add the prawns, salt and pepper. Keep warm.

Boil a large pot of water, add pasta and cook until al dente. Drain pasta and save 1 cup of the cooking water.

Toss vegetables, prawns and pasta together, adding Parmigiano Reggiano to taste and cooking water as needed to make a nice sauce.
