It’s another recipe post. I’ve got plenty up my sleeves, just have to get around to writing them and publishing them.
Tonight’s one is a quick pasta dish that makes a nice change from bolognese or carbonara and is almost a no-cook recipe.
You will need:-
For 2 people, I used the following:-
150g crab meat (whatever you prefer)
100g cooked squid rings
50g cooked, peeled prawns
2 egg yolks
50g grated cheese (cheddar, parmesan, whatever you prefer)
166g dried pasta
Your preferred amount of seasoning (salt, pepper or something more exotic such as cayenne also works)
Here’s the “work” bit. Quickly whisk the egg yolks in a bowl, then add the cream and cheese and whisk again. Add the seafood and mix well. Season as preferred. Job done. It will look a bit like this:-
Cook your preferred pasta as per packet instructions. You’ll note my very accurate weight of pasta above. It’s 500g divided by 3, which produces a good portion for two people. When the pasta is cooked, quickly drain it and return it to the hot pan. Then add the seafood mixture and stir quickly – the heat in the pasta and the pan will cook the sauce in just a minute or two.
It looks a little something like this:-
There you go, a quick and easy pasta meal.
