Crab Pasta Delight


A delightful mixture of creamy pasta with rich crab, garlic and topped with cheese. Try pairing it with Monterey Peninsula Winery's 1997 Doctor's Reserve Chardonnay.

Yield: 2
Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Cook Time: 35 Minutes


• 8 ounces jumbo crab meat
• 10 ounces cooked linguini
• 8 ounces heavy cream
• 2 ounces butter (unsalted)
• 6 roasted garlic pods
• 2 tablespoon green onion (chopped fine)
• 2 tablespoon fresh parsley (chopped fine)
• 2 ounces roasted red bell peppers
• pinch sea salt
• pinch black pepper

Heat 10-inch sauté pan on high heat. Add heavy cream, reduce to 1/3. Add butter and linguini, then toss lightly. Add all other ingredients (except cheese) and, again, toss gently.
