    FOOD: Corrie has a recipe:  Ottolenghi’s Pasta with Prawns, Tomato and Marinated Feta
    INGREDIENTS
    200g feta, broken into 1–2cm pieces
    ½ tsp chilli flakes4 tsp fennel seeds, toasted and lightly crushed
    75ml olive oil
    350g orzo or another small, thin pasta shape (I used this one from Waitrose)
    3 garlic cloves, crushed
    3 strips finely shaved orange skin
    1 x 400g tin chopped tomatoes
    500ml vegetable stock
    400g raw shell-off prawns
    30g basil leaves, roughly shredded
    Salt and black pepper
    METHOD
    In a medium bowl, mix the feta with ¼ teaspoon of the chilli flakes, 2 teaspoons of the fennel seeds and 1 tablespoon of the oil. 
    Set aside while you cook the pasta
    Place a large sauté pan, for which you have a lid, on a medium high heat. 
    Add 2 tablespoons of oil, orzo, ⅛ teaspoon of salt and a good grind of pepper. 
    Fry for 3–4 minutes, stirring frequently, until golden-brown, then remove from the pan and set aside.
    Return the pan to the same heat and add the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil, ¼ teaspoon of chilli flakes and 2 teaspoons of fennel seeds, the garlic and the orange skin. 
    Fry for 1 minute, until the garlic starts to lightly brown, then add the tomatoes, stock, 200ml of water, ¾ teaspoon of salt and plenty of pepper. 
    Cook for 2–3 minutes, or until boiling, then stir in the fried pasta. 
    Cover, then lower the heat to medium low and leave to simmer for 15 minutes, stirring once or twice throughout so the pasta is cooked. 
    Remove the lid and cook for a further 1–2 minutes, until the consistency is like a risotto. 
    Stir in the prawns for 2–3 minutes until they are pink and cooked. 
    Stir in the basil and serve at once, with the marinated feta sprinkled on top.
