by Luke Mangan to support Camp Quality

Featuring Newman’s Own® Tomato and Basil Pasta Sauce

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
Serves: 6


375g good quality spaghetti
645ml Newman’s Own Tomato and Basil Pasta Sauce
125ml chicken stock
300g cooked crab meat
200g fresh breadcrumbs
1 lemon, zested
50ml extra virgin olive oil
50g unsalted butter
40g parsley, roughly chopped
Cracked black pepper and sea salt




1. Place the pasta in a large saucepan of boiling water and cook until almost tender. Drain. In the meantime, add the extra virgin olive oil and butter to a medium hot pan. Once
melted, add the breadcrumbs and start toasting for a few minutes. Add the lemon zest, chopped parsley, tarragon and cook until the bread is golden brown.

2. Take out and place it on absorbent paper and season. Wipe out the pan, add the sauce, stock and bring it to a simmer, stirring occasionally. Season.

3. Add the cooked, drained pasta and stir through, tasting to check seasoning.

4. Add the crab meat and half of the bread crumb mix and fold through lightly, to ensure the crab doesn’t break up too much.

5. Divide onto 6 plates and sprinkle the remaining breadcrumbs on top.
