Bert demolished this. I was obviously more restrained.
1 garlic clove, crushed
A little olive oil
100ml sour cream
Pinch of saffron
Good pinch of paprika
100g crab meat
Handful grated parmesan and more to serve
Salt and pepper
Pasta to your appetite
Put your pasta on to boil.
Fry the crushed garlic very briefly in the oil till it’s soft but not coloured, then add the cream, paprika and saffron, cooking very very gently so the saffron can infuse the cream. When the pasta’s cooked, stir the sweetcorn, crab, cheese and seasoning through the cream and stir it all through the hot pasta.
Sprinkle more parmesan on at the table.
Bert: [blowing dramatically on pasta] ‘Hot, hot, hot!’
Me: ‘Is it hot?’
Bert: [extremely patiently] ‘No, not hot.’
