Bang Bang Prawn Pasta

Been a while since I shared any recipe on this blog. Since I made the decision to head back to work full time, it have been hard to even find time to experiment new recipes. 

Recently, my colleague and I decided to bring home cook lunch instead of eating out. So we take turns to cook and enjoy quiet moments of catching up while enjoying the home cook meals prepared for the day 😉 

So today, I decided to test out a new recipe that I recently came across only via   Bang Bang Pasta. In short, we ❤️ it! Guess this adapted recipe is here to stay 😍
