mediterranean linguine w/ prawns

remember last week when mr. handsome took over the kitchen and made that amazing butternut squash & pesto lasagna while i napped?  
well it happened again.  
except instead of napping i read a trashy magazine and sipped on a glass of shiraz.

one of my husbands favourite restaurant meals is the mediterranean linguine w/ prawns from earls.  truthfully, he had it last night when we went out to dinner.
apparently though, he didn't get his fix, so tonight he recreated it in our very own kitchen.
