Why Katy's Barking Gecko ?!

I love to travel, I love to cook and to try new recipes...

After returning from yet another trip to South Africa I browsed one of my Food Magazin subscriptions and

we started to envision how it might be to have a small, a very small restaurant. Somewhere in Australia or

South Africa.
Maybe 4 or 5 tables.
To be in the kitchen wearing t-shirt, shorts and flip-flops cooking for fun and nice people....

Doesn't that sound great ?!
We even came up with a name: Katy's Barking Gecko

Well there is no restaurant (so far....), but heaps of favourite recipes.

Sometimes the simplest recipes are among the best...
I just love to have some basic ingredients in the fridge and to be able to prepare a tasty dinner in next to no time.
Like our favorite

Spaghetti with Prawns, Garlic and Chilli

Easily made and yummy.....

Ingredients for 2

250g spaghetti, salted water
200 g prawns
½ tablespoon olive oil
1 chopped garlic clove
½ medium red chilli pepper (chopped)
½ tbsp chopped parsley
3 tablespoons white wine
200g tomato puree


Peel and clean the prawns.
Gently fry the garlic, chili pepper and parsley in hot oil, add the prawns and fry for an additional 1-2 minutes, then add the wine and tomatoes and cook another 2-3 minutes.
In the meantime cook the spaghetti in lightly salted boiling water, then drain the pasta, carefully fold in the sauce and serve immediately.
Serve with Parmesan if desired...

Buon appetito!
