Ingredients

  • 8 oz soba (aka buckwheat) noodles or 
whole-grain rotini pasta
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

1-inch-long thin strips
  • 6 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 8 cups fresh spinach

Preparation

  1. Cook noodles according to package directions. Reserve 1/2 cup pasta cooking water, drain and transfer to a large bowl.
  2. In a large skillet, heat oil on medium. Add pepper, scallions and garlic. Sauté, stirring occasionally, until pepper softens, about 5 minutes. Add crab and toss to combine.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, add arrowroot and reserved pasta cooking water. Whisk with a fork, gradually adding soy sauce and lime juice until well blended.
