A rich and creamy... almost velvety.... Alfredo Sauce spooned over a bed of tender Fettuccine with sweet jumbo lump crab meat, turns this dish into a true act of love. Serve it with garlic toast and a fresh tossed salad. YUM!
Fettuccine Alfredo with Jumbo Lump Crab
1 pound of fresh Jumbo Lump crab (I get mine at Costco)
2 cloves of garlic minced
pepper to taste
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter
2 Tablespoons all purpose flour
1 pint heavy cream
1 1/2 cups Parmigiana Reggiano cheese
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning (or more for a kick)
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon Parsley
In a medium saucepan, add the butter and melt over medium heat. Add in garlic and lightly brown. Whisk in flour,and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly. Slowly whisk in the heavy cream. Allow to come to a slow simmer. Reduce heat to low and add the Parmigiana Reggiano. Stir continually, until the cheese has all melted and the sauce has thickened. Add the garlic salt and pepper and Old Bay seasoning to taste; stir to combine.
Pour sauce over well drained fettuccine and toss until covered. Add the crab meat and toss very lightly, being careful not to break up the lumps. Sprinkle with parsley and more Old Bay if desired. Serve with a salad and garlic bread!
