Recipe For Crab Pasta

I have certain products that are a staple in my pantry cupboard. Given that I have a very small kitchen, there cannot be a lot of things I keep on hand. So, what I do keep has to be worth it. Tinned crab is one of those ingredients. It in no way compares to live crab, but as we don’t get fresh crab here, this has to do. It is the ingredient I always use in my crab pasta.

  2. Crab meat is my ultimate absolute favourite! I am lucky enough (at a premium of course) to be able to buy fresh crab meat in little containers at my local grocery store. 🙂 Yippee for me.
    I agree, those “crab” sticks are horrid.
    I am not sure when I try this recipe that I will be able to stop at 1 tablespoon of cream.
