Harry's buccatini with prawns

by popular demand fellow gastronauts....well pacanis asked me for the receep,cooked it & said it was pretty good,so that's good enough for me.if you don't like it blame pac!!
BUCCATINI WITH PRAWNS,CHERRY TOMATOES,PANCETTA,GARLIC & CHILLI
okey schmokey so:per person

a)100-125g/4-5oz buccatini(my fav),spaghetti or linguine
b)sliced chilli of choice or dried flakes
c)finely sliced garlic as much/little as you like
d)basil..i like greek but any will do
e)smoked pancetta..i use british drycure from tesco or smoked bacon
f)few glugs of evoo
g)200grms/8ozs cherry toms..i like fresh but canned are fine
h)lotsa ground black pepper...i use malabar from costco 'cos it's got it's own heat
i)as many fresh prawns...ok ok pac SHRIMP as you like
j)small glass of dry white wine...i like muscadet
how i do it
1)cook your pasta,drain & stir in a bit of evoo to stop it sticking while you cook the other ingredients
2)in the same pan,on a high heat,heat the evoo and fry off the pancetta or bacon with the garlic,chilli & black pepper.don't let the garlic burn.
3)chuck in the toms & stir until they start to pop & the juices run
4)chuck in the shrimp & the wine & just as the shrimp have cooked:
5)tip the cooked pasta back in with shrimp/toms etc,stir to mix & re heat the pasta.....serve & enjoy!!

I definitely give it two forks up
It will go in my rotation to be made when I have shrimp. Very quick, easy and flavorful.
