  1. Cook the orecchiette according to the packet instructions.

  2. Meanwhile, prepare the Tenderstem® broccoli by cutting the florets off and slicing the stem, then steam or boil for about 3 minutes until just tender.

  3. While the Tenderstem in cooking, sauté 400g peeled raw prawns in butter with 2-3 cloves crushed garlic and a good pinch of dried chilli flakes until they are pink and just cooked through. Then add a generous handful of chopped flat leaf parsley, season well with salt and black pepper.

  4. Add the cooked orecchiette and Tenderstem® broccoli to the prawns, toss well and serve immediately.
