Ingredients

* 15g olive oil

* 70g white wine
* 100g whipping cream
* 20g chopped coriander
* 200g linguine pasta

Method

In a large sauté pan add the olive oil, chillies and red onion.

Sweat for about three minutes.

Add the white wine and reduce by three-quarters then add the whipping cream and boil for about three minutes.

Add the chopped coriander and the cooked linguine pasta. Cook for a further two to three minutess until hot.

Season to taste, place into a large bowl, and serve. Place a lime wedge and shaved parmesan to garnish.
