Then put 500 grams of tagliatelle (alternatively another type of pasta), 250 grams of frozen leaf spinach, 1 liter of water & 1 tablespoon of salt in the pan, then stir everything well, bring to a boil & allow to simmer gently with the lid closed over low to medium heat for approx. 10 – 12 minutes.

Stir the One Pot Pasta from time to time so that all ingredients can be evenly distributed & nothing can burn on the bottom of the pan. As soon as the noodles are cooked & have absorbed the liquid almost completely, add 200 grams of creme fraiche, 200 grams of cooked crabs, the lemon zest and a good pinch of pepper.

  1. Hm, seit wann sind Krabben den vegetarisch? 😉 Ne, ich glaube, mit dem Kategorie-Filter Deiner Website (Die Stichwort-Wolke) stimmt was nicht, dieses Gericht hier wird mir unter den “vegetarischen Gerichten” angezeigt, obwohl diese Kategorie oben in der Liste nicht dabei ist.
