Prawn and Tomato Pasta

Serves 1

Containing healthy carbohydrates, lean protein and low levels of saturated fat, this pasta dish makes an ideal post-workout meal. Prawns are a low-fat source of protein and are high in calcium, important for healthy bones, muscles and teeth. They're also rich in Vitamin A and E. Tomatoes are high in lycopene, an antioxidant that may lower the risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease.
