Spaghetti Aglio Olio with Crab Sticks
 You must be thinking why on earth I added crab sticks to my spaghetti?
Well, I was home alone, outside is raining like dog and cat, lazy to go out to buy dinner,
hence I ransacked my pantry and fridge.  This is what I have, spaghetti and crab sticks.  
You will be surprised that the two combinations are magnificent.
