A delicious, delicate dish this, i often serve it up as a simple supper for my wife and myself, once the kids are tucked up in bed.
- Cook the pasta in a large pan of boiling, salted water.
- Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a frying pan and cook the shallot, garlic and chilli over a low to medium heat for 2-3 minutes until beginning to soften, but not brown. Add the tomatoes, increase the heat and cook for 4-5 minutes until pulpy.
- Now stir in the vodka, followed by the crab meat, and stir gently together. Season to taste.
- Drain the pasta well and return to the pan. Add the sauce and the chopped parsley and stir loosely together. Divide between bowls and top with a good grinding of black pepper.
