Spaghetti With Crab, Cherry Tomatoes & Basil
Submitted by:
Makes: 3 servings adjust
Punchy fresh flavours in a good-for-you-dish are often what you need for a midweek boost. This pasta dish has it all



  • 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, chopped
  • pinch Chili Flakes
  • 200 grams Cherry Tomato, halved
  • 1 Lemon, zested & juiced
  • 340 grams Canned White Crab, drained

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.


  • 200 grams Spaghetti
  • 1 tablespoon Capers, drained & rinsed
  • handful Basil Leaf, roughly chopped

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.
