Leftover Idea: Chilli Crab Pasta

Chilli Crab Pasta

We had chilli crabs for dinner last night but we over-ordered and had to ta-bao (take away) half of it back.

For today’s lunch, inspired by tigerfish’s spicy shrimp prawn pasta, I decided to make a no-brainer pasta dish from the leftovers. I just heated up the crabs, and served them over some cooked pasta. As easy as cooking can get ;p

Chilli Crab Pasta

Experimenting with food presentation. Serving the noodles inside the shell. Isn’t it adorable? I think it makes a good-looking side dish =p If I am the first one to ever do this, can I please patent it hehe? =P


Psst… have you heard the buzz? I’m one of Foodbuzz’s 24. Check back the blog on Sunday for a special blog feature :)
(Update: The foodbuzz 24 blog feature is here! Do read it and give me a buzz :) )

I’m submitting this cheater’s pasta dish to Equal Opportunity Kitchen for this week’s Presto Pasta Night.

    Oh no. I’m one nanomillimeter away from drooling all over my keyboard.
    Chili Crab and Pasta is such a lovely combination, and one I can never pass up. Thanks NC, it looks amazing!

    The pasta looks delicious. The sauce would work well with rice too.

    Congrats on being one of the 24. Can’t wait to see what you’re gonna blog about. :)

    BTW, I meant to submit something for GYO when you hosted but I missed the deadline. :(

    WOW! Chilli crabs are my favorite. And tossing pasta in the sauce is absolutely brilliant!! :XO:

    I like the shot of the pasta sitting in the shell, looks really exquisite. :-)

    If there were soft shell crabs, the plate will be empty now. Pasta + crab (including shell) all down my stomach! :)
    Did you like it? This style of pasta? :p
    Congrats on the Foodbuzz feature.
