I planned to post this recipe a few nights ago. Meh, who knows what happened? I’m like a gnat…or my daughter – easily distracted. This is a very easy recipe to go along with those Seafood Snackers we can pick up so inexpensively at Walmart.
Fettuccine Alfredo with Crab
1 – 12oz pkg Fettuccine Noodles
1/2 cup Butter or Margarine
1 cup Heavy Cream (or Half & Half)
1 cup Parmesan Cheese, grated
3 tablespoons Parmesan Cheese, shaved
1 lb cooked crab meat (or those fab $0.50 Seafood Snackers sliced on the diagonal for presentation)
Salt & Pepper to taste
Cook fettuccine according to package directions or desired doneness.
While fettuccine cooks, in small saucepan, heat butter and cream until butter melts.
Stir in 1 cup parmesan cheese, salt & pepper.
Continue stirring until cheese melted and well incorporated.
Add crab meat or imitation crab.
Drain noodles & return to pan.
Pour sauce over noodles and stir to coat.
Serve with vegetable of your choice (peas, broccoli, or side salad are perfect) and sprinkle with parmesan cheese shavings.
