We’ve got another speedy recipe like this one, it’s Rick Stein’s crab linguine made with lemon and garlic.

  • 1 red chilli, finely chopped
  • Large handful of fresh parsley, chopped, plus extra leaves to garnish
  • Finely grated zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 3 tbsp sliced slow-baked tomatoes with chilli plus 1 tbsp oil from the jar, such as Sacla’ Dallaglio
  • 200g fresh egg tagliatelle
  • 3 tbsp breadcrumbs, toasted in a frying pan with 1 tbsp oil, to serve


  1. Put the crabmeat, chilli, chopped parsley, lemon zest and juice, slow-baked tomatoes and oil from the jar into a mixing bowl, then stir to combine. Season well with salt and black pepper, then set aside.
  2. Bring a medium pan of salted water to the boil, then add the pasta and cook for 2 minutes. Drain, then return the pasta to the pan and stir through the crab mixture.
  3. Serve in shallow bowls, topped with the toasted breadcrumbs and garnished with extra parsley leaves.
