Approx. 20 cherry tomatoes, halved
3 tbsp of low-fat cream cheese
1 clove of garlic, crushed
160 grams of spaghetti
Cooking Oil Spray
fresh Italian Parsley to serve
black pepper
2 red chilies, very finely chopped
150 grams of fresh crab meat (I use a mix of claw and white crab meat) – can use canned, if you prefer


Place a large pot with water on the stove and turn the heat to high. Allow the water to boil.

Add the pasta and a bit of salt, then cook for a few minutes until al dente. Drain the pasta and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process. Make sure to set aside some of the pasta water for later use.

Place a frying pan on the stove and turn the heat to medium. Add a bit of oil and allow it to become hot. Add garlic clove, then cook for about a minute or until aromatic.

Add chili and tomatoes, then cook for a few more minutes until soft.

Add a bit of pasta water and cream cheese, then stir until well blended.

Put the cooked pasta into the pan together with the crab meat, then toss everything until well incorporated. Cook for a few more minutes, then remove the pan from the heat.

Sprinkle freshly chopped parsley on top to garnish.

Serve and enjoy!


Place any leftovers in an airtight container, then put them in the fridge. Reheat for a few minutes before serving again.
