Prawns and Pasta with Greek Salad

I finely diced a clove of garlic, a small onion and a stick of celery and put them in the pan to sweat. Shortly after the prawns went in and I sprinkled a teaspoon of dried basil over the pan. The prawns were turned over and removed from the pan before they were fully cooked. If they stay in the pan they will turn to rubber. The penne pasta was boiling away in salted water. I poured one to two cups tomato sauce into the sauce pan. When the sauce has thickened enough add the prawns back in to cook for two or three minutes. Add the drained pasta and plate with grated parmesan on top.

Greek Salad

1/3 English cucumber, diced (skins aren't bitter)
2 tomatoes
2 green onions
handful black pitted olives
chunk of cow feta broken over top
1 tbsp olive/canola oil
1-2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt
black pepper

It took an hour to put together but it was sure worth it!
