Expert Tips

If you don’t have a grill, you can sauté it separately in a skillet with a little olive oil. The prawns should be pink, and the chicken should cook for 10-15 minutes.

If you want to add a touch of color to your baked pasta, sprinkle a little paprika powder prior to serving.

Directions

  • 1 Wash prawns with fresh water. Remove the shells and devein. Dry with paper towel, place them in a deep bowl and let them marinate for 10 minutes in 1 tablespoon of olive oil, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 tablespoon of paprika powder, 1 teaspoon of garlic powder and 1/4 teaspoon of freshly ground pepper.
  • 2 Wash the boneless chicken breasts with fresh water. Use a sharp knife to cut them in half and make them flatter. Dry with paper towel, place them in a deep bowl and let them marinate for 10 minutes in 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 1/2 tablespoons of paprika powder, 1 teaspoon of garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon of freshly ground pepper, 1 1/2 tablespoons of granulated dried onion, 1 tablespoon of fresh rosemary with stem removed, 1/2 tablespoon of fresh sage (chopped) and 1/2 tablespoon of fresh thyme (chopped).
  • 3 After marinating for 10 minutes, place the prawns on the hot grill for about 4 minutes and the chicken for about 10-15 minutes until completely cooked. Then cut the chicken into strips and set aside, along with the whole prawns.
  • 4 Heat the 4 tablespoons of butter in a large skillet over medium heat and add chopped onion. Let it cook, stirring with a wooden spoon for about 3 minutes. Add chopped peppers and cook for another 3 minutes. Add the crushed garlic, stirring constantly for about 3 minutes. Add 1 1/2 tablespoons of fresh rosemary and dill. Cook for a bit, stirring constantly. Next, incorporate the Marsala wine and Dijon mustard into the mixture. Keep stirring and combining the ingredients. Lastly, add the 8 cups of cream or half and half. Lower the heat to low and stir occasionally. Let it reduce for about 6 minutes. Add the 3/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese and grated lemon zest to the cream. Taste for salt and pepper, and cook over low heat for another 4 minutes. Keep an eye on the mixture while it’s cooking; if the cream comes to a boil, it can easily spill over on the stove. Remove the skillet from the heat.
  • 5 Heat oven to 375°F.
  • 6 In the meantime, place the pasta in a large pot with plenty of boiled water for 12 minutes. Drain it into a colander and put it back in the pot where you will combine it with the cream, prawns and chicken. Place everything on a baking pan, approximately 13” x 16” x 3.75”. Sprinkle with the cup of Parmesan cheese and top with fresh rosemary sprigs for garnish. Bake for 12-15 minutes, uncovered. Take it out of the oven; let it rest for about 10 minutes and serve.
