Ingredients

  • 320g dried linguine
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 clove of garlic,
  • 4 spring onions,

  • fresh red chilli pepper
  • 300g picked fresh white
  • crab meat
  • 25ml dry white wine
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh
  • flat-leaf parsley
  • Salt and black pepper

Method

Step 1: Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and cook the linguine for 7–8 minutes, or according to packet instructions, until al dente.

Step 2: Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large, deep frying pan and add the garlic, spring onions and chilli pepper. Fry lightly without colouring for 1 minute. Stir in the crab meat and heat through for another minute.
