Gluten and Dairy Free Cajun Cream Prawn Spaghetti

Hello

I’m writing this blog post in advance of a trip to Italy where I’m sure I’ll be enjoying lots of amazing gluten and dairy free pasta dishes.

This is a simple spaghetti dish with Cajun seasoned prawns in a tomato sauce with some dairy free cream.  I used Tesco FreeFrom spaghetti and Alpro dairy free cream to make this.

Enjoy!
