In a large saucepan of boiling salted water, cook pasta until al dente (as per packet instructions).

Meantime grill the prawns and set aside.

In a non stick skillet, combine milk, cream, flour and cook on a medium high until it starts to get thick then bring heat to low, add the butter and garlic powder. Keep stirring until viscous.
