Ingredients

Directions

Bring a large pot of water to a boil and season generously with salt. Add the spaghetti, stir and cook until al dente, 6 to 8 minutes. Reserve 1/2 cup of the pasta water, then drain the spaghetti.

Meanwhile, add the olive oil to a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the diced zucchini and cook until lightly browned but still slightly firm, 4 to 5 minutes. Add the red pepper flakes, garlic and habanero and cook for 1 minute. Add the wine, 1 tablespoon of the butter and the reserved pasta water and cook for another minute. Turn off the heat, add the crab and gently stir to mix everything.

Add the drained spaghetti, then add the parsley, basil and lemon zest. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon butter, some salt and pepper and a drizzle of olive oil and stir to combine. Transfer to a serving bowl and garnish with the dill and more basil.
