  1. Cook the orecchiette according to the packet instructions.

  2. Meanwhile, prepare the Tenderstem® broccoli by cutting the florets off and slicing the stem, then steam or boil for about 3 minutes until just tender.

  4. Add the cooked orecchiette and Tenderstem® broccoli to the prawns, toss well and serve immediately.
