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.
