begin by making pasta, with a machine, like in my first attempt at homemade pasta post. you pretty much use 100g flour to one egg. this was a really big portion for myself and i didn't actually end up eating it all. but it was very therapeutic to make! :) the actual pasta making takes around 15 minutes and the crab filling takes next to no time to mix together.
i begun by making the pasta and letting it dry out in strips whilst i made the filling, i then cut it into (rather rustic) rectangles to fold over a heaped teaspoon of the crab mixture and pinch to seal.
to make the filling, i literally took each ingredient and put it together in steps. this was my first time guessing the ratios for this recipe and i was really happy with the results. once in the parcels, boil for around 3-5 minutes and serve with black pepper and parmesan cheese - i didn't really see the need for a sauce as i wanted to really taste the crab.
if you like this, maybe try my version of nigella's crab linguine. i hadn't experimented with the pasta machine at this point so i'm afraid it's shop bought linguine.
