Lemon Pasta with Crab

6oz (dry) angel hair pasta cooked el dente

3 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 tablespoons lemon zest
1/4 cup basil chopped
1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
2 cloves garlic - minced
1/2 of a cayenne pepper, seeds removed
2 tablespoons capers
1/4 cup shaved parmasean cheese

optional 2 diced tomatoes

in bowl add all ingredients, toss with pasta

** also optional Crab

Crack entire crab.

Toss in pan with 2 tablespoons of butter and a little garlic and lemon juice. Heat until warm, mixing frequently, serve over pasta. (we just had the crab on the side...)

Technical stuff: makes 4 servings
Difficulty: Easy, easy, easy.
Served with: bread and caprese salad
Reheat Well?: Yup. yup. yup.

Comments: Uber easy to make, this is one of the chief commentators favorites. This is a great one, if you have basil in the garden because you can make it less than 10 minutes. Super flavorful, and always a crowd pleaser. This is the #1 recipe I have made out of my cookbook and make it over and over. You can totally increase or decrease the quantity as needed.
