Prawn, Fennel and Baby Spinach in Tomato Sauce

I LOVE SEAFOOD! However, I don’t often cook it at home because hubby is not a fan… Almost a relationship #dealbreaker! So, when he’s out with the boys I take the opportunity to whip up a delicious seafood meal for the kids and I. I’m sure you’ll enjoy this Prawn, Fennel and Baby Spinach in Tomato Sauce recipe as much as we do!
