Heat the olive oil in a deep frying pan, add the crushed garlic and cook the king prawns until pink, turning once (this will only take a few minutes). Place the pasta in boiling water and begin to cook.
Remove the prawns from the pan and set aside. Add the spring onions and cook for a minute.
Add the chopped tomatoes, the wine and the double cream. Increase heat and simmer gently for a few minutes.
Add the Cayenne Pepper and tear the basil leaves into the sauce.
Return the prawns to the sauce and heat through.
Check the seasoning and add salt and pepper if needed.
Toss the pasta in the sauce and serve.
