Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Cook the linguine following pack instructions, reserving a little cooking liquid before you drain it.

  • STEP 2

    Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a frying pan. Add the garlic and cook gently to soften, but don’t brown. Stir in the crème fraîche, crabmeat, chopped rocket and lemon zest, and gently heat through.

  • STEP 3

    Tip in the cooked pasta and a little cooking liquid to help the sauce coat the pasta. Season and give everything a stir. Sprinkle with the pine nuts and remaining rocket leaves.
