Ingredients
  Boiling water 7 1⁄2 Cup (120 tbs)
  Oil 1 Tablespoon
  Spaghetti 1⁄2 Pound
  Canned tomatoes 14 Ounce (1 Can)
  Tomato paste 1 Tablespoon
  Shelled shrimp 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Canned crab meat 1⁄2 Pound, drained (1 Can)
  Pimento stuffed olives 12 , drained
  Cornstarch 3 Teaspoon
  Parmesan cheese 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (For Garnish)
  Pimento olives 12 (Extra)
  Salt To Taste
  Pepper To Taste
Directions

1 Pour 3 pints boiling water into a 2.25 litre/4 pint (10 cup) heatproof mixing bowl. Add salt and oil.
2 Hold the spaghetti in boiling water curling round as the pasta softens, so that all is eventually immersed.
3 Cover with plastic wrap (lift one corner), or a lid, and microwave on full power for 8 minutes. Set aside, covered.
4 In a large jug put tomatoes, tomato puree (paste), prawns (shrimp), crab meat and olives. Add salt and pepper to taste.
5 Cover with plastic wrap, and pierce. Microwave on full power for 6 minutes, stirring once, half way through cooking.
6 Cream the cornflour (cornstarch) to a smooth paste with a little cold water and stir into the hot seafood sauce. Return to the microwave on full power for 1 minute. Stir.
7 Drain the spaghetti, arrange it on a serving dish and pour over the seafood sauce.
8 Sprinkle liberally with Parmesan cheese, and garnish with olives. Serve with a mixed salad.
