Italian Food Recipes: Pasta Recipes: Spicy Crab Pasta

I love pasta recipes and this dish is not a traditional Italian pasta dish but it sure is a delicious one. This is spicy crab pasta! In many ways you could called it Thai Pasta as I am using many of the flavors of Southeast Asia in many of my pasta recipes. The flavors of garlic and basil along with the spicy nature of both red and green chilies with tomatoes and olive oil and let’s not forget the crab claw meat. If you love pasta recipes as much as I do then you should try this recipe out I promise you will love it! You can find the recipe below.
