Sunrise Kitchen: Spicy crabmeat with vegetable pasta

 

Spicy crabmeat with vegetable pasta by John Besh

Ingredients:

1 cup cherry tomatoes

1 recipe basic homemade pasta or dried linguine or spaghetti

1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil

1 small zucchini, thinly sliced

1 small yellow squash, thinly sliced

1 small Japanese eggplant, thinly sliced

1 clove garlic, minced

1 pound jumbo lump blue crabmeat picked over

1 cup cherry tomato five minute sauce

1 heaping teaspoon sambal chile paste

leaves of 1 sprig fresh basil chopped

Steps:

1) Bring a small pot of water to a boil over high heat. While the water heats, make a tiny incision on the stem end of every tomato. Drop the tomatoes into the boiling water. Remove them immediately and cool in a bowl of ice water. Slip the skins from the tomatoes.

2) Meanwhile, cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water over moderate heat until just tender, 3-12 minutes depending on whether you are using fresh pasta or dried. Drain the pasta.

3) Heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and saute the zucchini, yellow squash and eggplant until soft about 7 minutes.

4) Add the garlic and peeled tomatoes to the skillet. Season with a little salt and pepper. Add crabmeat cherry tomato five minute sauce and cooked pasta. Toss everything together then add 6 tablespoons of the olive oil and the chile paste. Cook for 5 minutes then remove from the heat. Add the basil just before serving and season again with salt and pepper.

 

CHERRY TOMATO FIVE MINUTE SAUCE:

Ingredients:

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil.

2 quarts ripe cherry tomatoes halved

leaves from 1 branch fresh basil

1 teaspoon sugar

2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes.

4 cloves garlic, thinly slice.

Salt freshly ground black pepper.

Steps:

1) heat the oil in a large saute pan over high heat, add tomatoes, basil, sugar, pepper flakes, and garlic and cook until tomatoes come to a boil. Cook for five minutes more, crushing the tomatoes with the back of a wooden spoon.

2) use a food mill to puree the sauce, or push the tomatoes through a strainer into a bowl with a rubber spatula. Discard solids, season the puree with salt and pepper.

3) pour the pureed tomatoes through a canning funnel into a quart jar. Use as soon as possible.

    FIRST ALERT FORECAST: First day of Fall is a hot one, with a few pop up showers possible

    Friday, September 22 2017 4:48 AM EDT2017-09-22 08:48:32 GMT
    A few showers possible this afternoonA few showers possible this afternoon

    For today, we will have a few small pop up showers in the afternoon. Rain chances are at only 20%, so not everyone will see rain. Any rain we do get, will not last long. There will be plenty of passing clouds, but that won’t stop the heat. Highs today will be in the low 90s, with heat indices in the mid to upper 90s! Even though fall is officially starting today, it certainly will not feel like it! By tonight, we will keep the rain chances low as all showers come to an end.
