Crab Linguine with Broccoli and Tomatoes

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by erinBOberrin

This is a recipe I made up one night with the ingredients I had on hand. It's very quick to make and it has a great deal of flavor from the "crispy" garlic. Try alternate/additional veggies -- mushrooms, red bell pepper, zucchini, spinach, artichokes, peapods, etc. Or substitute shrimp or scallops for the crab. Most dry or fresh pastas would work in this recipe.

I made this for my boyfriend as a celebratory dinner, and it was so easy and fast that I was done before he got to my apartment! No matter - it tasted great and was a success. I recommend it!
