Crab Linguine Alfredo ~ (Red Lobster Copy Cat)

Red Lobster Copy Cat - Crab Linguine Alfredo (Serves 1)

Sweet crabmeat tossed in Parmesan cream sauce with linguine. A pinch of cayenne pepper gives this dish a little extra zip.


1 teaspoon butter
1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
1/2 cup half-and-half, plus more as needed
6 ounces snow crab meat, cut into chunks
3 tables spoons grated Parmesan cheese, plus extra for serving
Sal and white pepper
Pinch of cayenne pepper
4 ounces linguine pasta


In a small sauce, melt the butter and whisk in the flour, stirring constantly, until the mixture is smooth. Add the half-and-half and simmer for about 5 minutes

Add the crabmeat and the 2 tablespoons Parmesan and stir to combine well. Season with salt and white pepper and a pinch of cayenne. Stir and let simmer for 2 minutes. If the sauce get to think, thin it with a little more half-and-half.

Toss the cooked pasta with the crab sauce. Serve the pasta in a warmed bowl and finish with a little more Parmesan cheese.

Bon Appetit!!

  1. OH EM GEE! I was just thinking today about a website I used to frequent that had copycat recipes from restaurants and how I need to find that site again. This just became my new fave blog. Do you know how hard it is to convince four kids that tonight's chicken dinner is different than last night's chicken dinner? They're smarter than you might think.
