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.

Steps:
