Spicy Crab Bucatini

This spicy crab bucatini pasta recipe is hands down the easiest recipe I’ve ever shared on the blog! Yes, we’re using store-bought arrabbiata sauce and a couple of other ingredients to make this delicious restaurant-quality meal.

What can I serve this with?

My favorite way of serving this is with a big salad and cheesy garlic bread. Such a fun, quick, delicious, and easy meal!


– 3/4 lb bucatini – 1 lb crab meat jumbo or lump crab – 28 ounces Rao's Arrabbiata sauce – 1/2 lemon – 2 garlic cloves finely minced – 2 tbsp olive oil – pinch red crushed pepper optional – salt and pepper to taste


– Add 2 tbsp of olive oil, minced garlic, and red crushed pepper to a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat for 30 seconds. – Add the arrabbiata sauce to the skillet and stir. Reduce the heat to low and cook for 5-10 minutes while the pasta cooks.


– Squeeze some lemon juice over the crab meat and toss gently. Fold in 1/2 of the crab meat into the sauce and then add the cooked pasta to the sauce. Check for seasoning and add salt and pepper if needed. – Top with the remaining crab meat and enjoy!
