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.
- 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!
