Here is a healthy and quick to prepare a two course meal. So simple but very tasty. We really enjoyed it and to keep it healthy ditch the garlic bread! This is for two people, you just double the ingredients to serve more!
STARTER: MOZZARELLA AND TOMATO SALAD
A Beef Tomato
Half a small red onion
Fresh basil leaves
One "ball" of mozzarella
Sliced black olives
Balsamic glaze to finish
Thinly slice the tomato, onion, black olives and mozzarella and place on a bed of rocket. Tear up the basil and and place on top. Drizzle the glaze like in the picture just before serving - if you do it earlier it will spread and won't look so pretty!
MAIN COURSE - CRAB AND CHERRY TOMATO PASTA
White Crab Meat (one pot is more than enough
Tin of finest cherry tomatoes (or the equivalent in fresh cherry tomatoes)
4 cloves of garlic (minced)
Teaspoon of dried chilli seeds
Fresh Basil (handful - leaves only)
This bit is simple. Whilst cooking the spaghetti and after draining the juice out of the tin of tomatoes chuck everything in the pan and simmer. Add the basil and the crab meat at the last moment as well as a squeeze of lemon. Mix in the spaghetti, sprinkle on dried parsley and parmesan if you want to then serve!
