Linguine with Chilli, Crab and White Wine
Pasta is often served with heavy, stodgy and creamy sauces.
In Italy they go for much simpler dishes - this has hardly any ingredients, yet it tastes great; the olive adding a little good fat and the chilli and garlic boosting your metabolism.
By Sophie Michell
Place a large pan of water on to boil, when at a rapid boil, add salt and then the pasta.
While the pasta is cooking, heat the oil up in a large frying pan. Add the garlic, then crumble in the chilli, fry for a couple of minutes, but do not get any colour on the garlic.
Add the crab, lemon and parsley then season well.
When the pasta is done (this should take about 10 minutes, but read the individual packet instructions and cook al’dente), drain, retaining about 1 tsbp of pasta water and add both to the frying pan. Cook for another 5 minutes and then serve with an extra drizzle of olive oil.
