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.

Share recipe


  • 400g linguine
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 1 pinch dried chilli
  • 2 lemons, grated and juiced
  • 1 small handful chopped flat leafed parsley
  • 400g crab meat


Step 1

Place a large pan of water on to boil, when at a rapid boil, add salt and then the pasta.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

Add the crab, lemon and parsley then season well.

Step 4

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.
