Crab and Sweet Chilli Pasta

This is a bit of a different pasta sauce. The addition of the sweet chilli was really interesting and lightly spicy. I used tinned crab rather than fresh as it's much cheaper but it was a really fresh and delicious sauce.

Crab and Sweet Chilli Pasta
(Serves 4)

I tbsp olive oil
200g red peppers, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 onion, finely chopped
4 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
100ml fish stock or water
400g tin chopped tomatoes
350g fresh crab meat
250g spaghetti
1 tbsp chopped coriander
salt and pepper

Heat some oil in a pan and add the peppers, garlic, onion and a pinch of salt. Cook over a medium heat until soft. Add the sweet chilli sauce, fish stock and chopped tomatoes. Simmer for 20 mins.

Meanwhile, bring a pan of water to the boil and cook the pasta according to packet instructions. Add the crab and coriander to the sauce then stir in the pasta. Toss together well, season and serve.
