this is another family favorite, introduced to us by friends of ours at a ‘dinner group’ we’re a part of. so, so easy. so, so fast. and sooooo yum! i have no recipe for this, so its all guesswork. the great thing is, you can make this with staples you have on hand, so it works great for an impromptu get-together!

pasta limone
serves 4

angel hair pasta
1/2 cup lemon juice
2 or 3 garlic cloves, minced or sliced
small handful of fresh parsley, chopped
6 oz crab meat

1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the pasta until al dente, about 8 minutes. Add a glug of olive oil to the water during the last minute or so. Drain.

2. Meanwhile, add a good glug of olive oil to a saucepan and heat over medium heat. Add the garlic and stir for a minute or so. Add the lemon juice and crab meat, stirring, and reduce heat to low. Let this heat up for a few minutes.

3. Add the angel hair pasta to the skillet and toss it all together to combine. Sprinkle with chopped parsley and serve with some Parm, if you’re so inclined.
