Nutritional Bonus: Lemon is the star of this dish – it boosts flavor and is a great source of vitamin C, which supports the immune system, as well as flavonoids, which are plant-based compounds that protect the body’s cells from harmful free radical damage.

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 red bell peppers, seeded and cut into thin strips
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 8 oz cooked crab meat, picked over for shells
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley, divided
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • Zest of 2 lemons
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 8 oz whole-wheat angel hair pasta

Preparation

  1. In a large nonstick skillet on medium-high, heat oil. Add bell peppers and salt and saute until tender and lightly browned, about 8 minutes. Reduce heat to low and add crab, 6 tbsp parsley, pepper flakes, lemon zest and juice. Cook, stirring frequently, until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, cook pasta al dente according to package directions. Before draining pasta, ladle about 1 cup cooking water into a heat-proof cup and set aside. Drain pasta and return to pot, off the heat.
  3. To pasta pot, add crab mixture and 1/4 cup reserved pasta water; stir to combine. Add more water as needed to moisten to desired consistency. Divide among serving bowls and sprinkle with remaining 2 tbsp parsley.
