There is something to be said for a hearty pasta meal, especially when its as rich and creamy as this Crab Alfredo recipe. We’ve made our fair share of pasta, from Spicy Sausage Pasta Bakes to freezer-cooking friendly Baked Spaghetti. Our Goulash recipe is to die for, and our Italian Pasta Salad–it’s beyond reproach.
You better believe this meal is one to be savored. It’s bite after bite of pure rich decadence.
One bit of advice, if you are making this recipe with crab legs, be sure to have some good seafood crackers on hand. They make the job of extracting crab meat SO much easier…and it is totally worth it to buy fresh crab meat when you can because the taste is amazing. However, if fresh isn’t available buying frozen crab meat is good as well.
