How to make Creamy Crab, Chilli, and Cherry Tomato Pasta
Step 1: Following the package directions, cook the pasta. Drain when done and set aside. Make sure to set aside a little pasta water.
Step 2: Using cooking oil spray, grease a frying pan. Then, add the garlic clove and cook for approximately 1 minute. Now, add the tomatoes along with the chilli and continue to cook until softened.
Step 3: To the pan, stir in the cream cheese and the reserved pasta water until the cream cheese has melted.
Step 4: Then, add the cooked spaghetti followed by the crab meat. Toss and continue to cook further until the crab is heated through.
Step 5: Before serving, sprinkle with some fresh parsley. Enjoy!
