Method:

1.    Make the pesto by combining all the pesto ingredients in a blender and pulse until the ingredients are mixed. Do not over blend - you want some texture, not a puree. Leave to one side.

2.      Cook the tagliatelle in boiling, slightly salted water until al dente (just soft) and then strain.

3.      Melt the butter in the pan and fry the chopped shallot until soft, but not coloured.

4.      Add the wine and reduce to half

5.      Add the prawns and toss with the onion and wine until they are pink

6.      Stir in the pesto and crème fraiche and heat through gently

7.      Add the tagliatelle to the pan and incorporate with the other ingredients

8.      Serve with sprigs of mint and lemon wedges and nice crusty bread
