Pastas like this have always been my favourite, just those simple but perfect flavour combinations. I used a tin of white crab meat here (£1 in Home Bargains so definitely the cheaper option!) but it would be even lovelier I’m sure with fresh crab if you can get it!

Ingredients

  • 150 g linguine
  • 2 spring onions finely chopped
  • 1 tsp dried chilli flakes or 1 fresh red chilli, finely chopped
  • 125 ml white wine
  • grated zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 200 g crab meat tinned or fresh
  • 2 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 5 sprays low calorie cooking spray

Instructions

  • Cook the pasta in a large pan of boiling salted water according to the packet instructions.
  • Meanwhile, heat low calorie cooking spray in a small frying pan over a medium heat, add the spring onions, garlic and chilli and fry for 1-2 minutes. Pour in the wine and bubble for 1 minute.
  • Turn down the heat, add half the lemon zest and the lemon juice and crab meat, and stir to combine. Season to taste, then add to the cooked pasta and mix well. Divide between 2 pasta bowls to serve, sprinkling over the remaining lemon zest as a garnish.

Notes

The perfect salad to accompany this is rocket with baby tomatoes.
