Anna: Have you worked out what the mystery ingredient is?
Peter: It’s the breadcrumbs.
Peter: Well they do add a certain crunch to proceedings.
Anna: Hmm. Mine have gone a bit soggy now I’ve stirred them around. I’m not convinced, and they add an extra step which isn’t required in any of my other crab spaghetti recipes.
Peter: The watercress was an interesting addition as well.
Anna: I’ve seen this in other recipes. Nigella’s has it for example. We loved that recipe.
Peter: The watercress was nearly your undoing this time….
Anna: I forgot to buy it, yes. I’m a numpty. But Sainsburys in Holborn Circus saved the day. We can’t have a day go by without me forgetting something.
Anna: You’re right. I can’t not like crab pasta, whatever the recipe. But the extra steps involved with this one, making breadcrumbs and cooking breadcrumbs, is enough for me to turn to Nigella/River Cafe/Bill instead. Sorry Lucas.
