Peter: Ooh. Pasta-y prawn cocktail!
Anna: Yes, it is rather. I’m not sure if I love it.
Peter: The pasta is quite sticky.
Anna: That’s because it is fresh egg taglierini. Nigella does warn in the recipe that it ‘soaks up the sauce’ so I wasn’t too shocked when it clumped together. I should have added more of the cooking water than I did.
Peter: It’s ok. I’m not sure it’s a classic.
Anna: Yes. On the positive side it was super quick and super easy. But I agree. I’m a bit underwhelmed. Which is a disappointment. I don’t think I’ll be making this again. Sorry Nigella.
