Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat the oil in a large frying pan and boil the kettle for the pasta. Add the shallot to the oil and gently sizzle for 5 mins until soft. Add the garlic and chilli, and cook for another 1-2 mins.

  • STEP 2

    Tip the kettle of hot water into a large pan, add the pasta and cook following pack instructions. Meanwhile, add the dressed crab to the frying pan. Drain the tomatoes over a bowl and tip the juice into the pan. Add the sugar, cream (if using) and some seasoning. Bubble gently while the pasta cooks.

  • STEP 3

    Just before the pasta is finished, add the cherry tomatoes and crabmeat chunks to the pan, stir for 1-2 mins, then drain the pasta (reserve a little pasta water) and add this too. Cook everything for another min, adding a splash of pasta water if the sauce looks dry, then season to taste. Stir through the herbs, if you like, and serve.
