Woman's Weekly recipe A great pasta dish for the whole family. Crayfish are added to tagliatelle with a creme fraiche sauce. This is quick and easy to make.

Ingredients

  • 150g (5oz) tagliatelle
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 1 courgette, trimmed and grated
  • 180g pot crayfish tails in brine, drained (we used T The Big Prawn Company)
  • 200g pot crème fraîche
  • Finely grated zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • About 2 tbs chopped fresh dill
  • Pinch of mild

Crème fraîche (French soured cream) gives a lovely, tangy flavour to this dish. As it’s stable when heated, it makes an excellent lower-fat alternative to double cream for hot sauces.

Method

  1. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil, then add the tagliatelle and cook, according to pack instructions, until al dente.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large frying pan, add the garlic and courgette and cook for 2 mins, then add the crayfish and cook for 1 min.
  3. Drain tagliatelle, add to pan with the crème fraîche, lemon zest and juice, and dill. Warm through, stir and serve sprinkled with mild chilli powder, if you like.
