INGREDIENTS
Servings: 4
dried fettucine
butter
garlic, minced
all-purpose flour
salt and black pepper to taste
cayenne pepper
half-and-half
cream cheese, softened
grated Parmesan cheese
crabmeat, flaked
DIRECTIONS
  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain. Keep warm and covered.
  2. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and cook until garlic releases its aroma, about 2 minutes, being careful not to let the garlic brown. Stir in the flour, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper. Reduce heat, and cook, stirring constantly for about 2 minutes. Add the half-and-half and stir over medium heat until slightly thickened, about 3 minutes.
  3. Add the cream cheese and Parmesan cheese to the sauce and stir until cheeses melt and mixture is smooth. Mix in the crabmeat and continue cooking until crabmeat is heated through, about 3 minutes.
  4. Divide the fettucine between 2 plates or bowls and top with the crab sauce.
