Spaghetti with crab, cherry tomatoes & basil
- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 3
Punchy fresh flavours in a good-for-you-dish are often what you need for a midweek boost. This pasta dish has it all
- STEP 1
In a large frying pan, heat the olive oil. Add the garlic and chilli flakes. Cook until just pale golden, then add the tomatoes. Cook 3 mins more on a high heat until the tomatoes start to break down a little. Add the lemon juice and cook for 1-2 mins. Remove from the heat and stir in the crab to warm through – not too much or it will break up.
- STEP 2
Boil the pasta in a large pan of salted water following pack instructions then drain. Mix the pasta in the warm pot with the sauce, lemon zest and capers, and toss the basil through.
