How to make spicy crab spaghettini
Now, this is my take on Spicy Crab Pasta. A relatively lighter and mildly spicy version. In fact, this is my favorite. It's a simple saute of onion, garlic, fresh tomatoes, parsley with the addition of red pepper flakes and a small portion of chili garlic sauce for added flavor and interest. As with any other seafood dish, freshly squeezed lemon juice was added to balance out & brighten up the flavors of the dish. As for my pasta cut of choice for this light pasta dish, which is ideal for spring/summertime weather (perfect for any time of year, in my opinion), I thought spaghettini cut fits the bill.
Saute onion and garlic.
Add cooked crabmeat.
Add red pepper flakes (to your liking)
and then the chili garlic sauce,
+ a small amount of pasta cooking H20
diced tomatoes would come last as I prefer them not to be fully cooked in this recipe
Toss cooked spaghettini in sauce.
Add cheese if desired.
