Grilled Prawns in Herbed Arugula Pasta

Pasta is usually easy to prepare. Here’s the twist here. You will need to make your own pasta but of course you can skip that part and just buy pasta ribbons. I first learned to make homemade pasta when my mom bought a pasta maker. I have had it with me for many years until Ondoy damaged my small Kitchen appliances . You might want to experiment with homemade pasta even without a pasta maker. It isn’t that hard since you will just form ribbons.

Here’s the recipe:

2 cups MAYA All Purpose Flour
