Crab pasta
Originally uploaded by EatingVideo
This is a very quick and easy dish. It is a variation of a dish found in the mediterranean certainly Italy and Spain. Where day old bread is cooked in oil till crisp and combined either with sausage or vegetables or both.
I boiled some pasta till done, drained it and added two taplespoons of crabmeat and set aside.
I grated some day old bread with a large bore grater
I then pan fried the bread with one tablespoon of butter and one tablespoon of olive oil, two cloves of garlic, a tablespoon of ground parmesan and 3 tablespoons of fresh parsley chopped. I tossed it till the bread was brown and crisp. and then seasoned with salt and pepper.
I then combined the bread with the pasta and immediately served it.

Crab pasta

The contrast of textures works very well, with the crisp bread and the soft pasta. The crab worked well giving the dish an interesting sweetness. Took less than 25 minutes start to finish.
