Courgette & Crab Linguine

How to make Courgette and Crab Linguine.


  • 350g linguine
  • 500g crabmeat
  • 500g courgettes, cut into ribbons with a peeler
  • 3 chopped garlic cloves
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1⁄2 unwaxed lemon, finely grated zest and juice
  • 2 tsp dried dill
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Parmesan, to serve


  1. Cook the pasta in salted boiling water for about 8 minutes, or until al dente.
  2. While that’s happening, stick the courgette ribbons in a colander, and sit it over the pasta pot so that they steam nicely for about 2 minutes.
  3. Drain the pasta (save a little of the cooking water), and tip into a large saucepan.
  4. In a separate frying pan, fry the onion in the oil for a minute or two, then add the oil and the garlic into the saucepan with the pasta.
  5. Put on a very low heat.
  6. Toss in the crabmeat, the dill, the courgettes, the lemon zest and juice, and plenty of salt and pepper.
  7. Mix until all is combined, then serve in bowls with a sprinkling of parmesan cheese.
  8. Enjoy!
