Bill's Prawn and Chilli Linguine

I am tired tonight. It was a long day a work and I bought some lasagne for lunch that gave me terrible heartburn so I haven't felt the best this afternoon. Will go back to tuna salad sandwich tomorrow, see I do like some seafood. lol 
Just a quick post of a quick recipe. This was a very quick and easily made dinner. With it I kicked off making some of the seafood recipes in this lovely book. At least this was one where I could easily get all the ingredients. However, I wasn't all that keen on it. The flavours weren't bad but I just found it oily. At first I thought that I could just reduce the amount of oil in the recipe but realised that without all the oil it would be dry. I don't think that I will be making this one again. It is just not to my taste.
