  1. Heat oil in a medium-sized skillet until shimmering. Add garlic, prawns, salt and pepper and stir to combine.
  2. Cook, stirring occasionally, until prawns are pink and cooked through. Prawns cook very quickly, so keep an eye on them – they shouldn’t take more than 5 or 6 minutes!
  3. Cook fettuccine in very salty water until al dente. Drain, set aside, and return empty pot to the stove.
  4. Heat oil in pot over medium heat. When oil is warm, whisk in flour to form a roux. Cook for 1 minute.
  5. Slowly add white wine to roux, whisking constantly to incorporate. The mixture will thicken pretty quickly – just keep whisking!
  6. Add a2 Milk™ to mixture and whisk to combine. Bring mixture to a low simmer, whisking frequently, then remove from heat and stir in salt, pepper, and cheese. Stir until cheese has mixed with the milk and you have a smooth sauce.
  7. Add cooked pasta and prawns to sauce pot and toss to combine. Top with fresh chopped parsley for garnish and serve immediately.
