This prawn and wattleseed fettuccine is a perfect weekday-gourmet dish to brighten up the working week. I picked up the wattleseed fettuccine at the local markets, but you could use wholemeal or spelt fettuccine or whatever pasta you have at home. The wattleseed fettuccine is, however, an interesting ingredient and looks lovely with the tiny dark spots of wattleseed. The taste is not too strong and suits well for this dish. The juicy prawns and the sweet cherry tomatoes makes me think of sunny summer days!
