Fiery chilli & crab spaghetti


Sometimes you need to make something delicious, filling, healthy and you need it quick! If that’s what you’re looking for look no further!

This recepie will take not longer than 15 minutes to make, it’s a bit of a cheat considering you are using a ready made pasta sauce. However it’s delicious and a healthy go to dish after a busy day working.

The sacla fiery chilli pesto has to be my favourite of all their pesto pots. I really wansnt expecting it to be that ‘fiery’ or full of so much flavour other than the heat.

This is one of those recipes you will run back to time and time again and the beauty of it is you can make it as versitile as you want. Feel free to replace the crabmeat with some prawns or chicken. Add more of your favourite vegetables to the sauce or opt to have it on the side. The choice is completely yours.

Hope you enjoy!
