Creamy garlic prawn pasta

Can we all agree that shrimp or prawn anything is just delicious!! As much as I love my prawns I really do despise all the prepping. I mean if you are fussy like me and want them de-shelled and de-veined Yes you can buy them all prepped and pre-cooked but I find those don’t taste…
