This pasta sauce is a little decadent but it is truly delicious! Serve with garlic bread, a green salad and a glass of white wine.


Serves: 4 

  • 250g fettucine
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons plain flour
  • 1 pinch salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup (250g) full cream milk
  • 1 cup (250g) light thickened cream
  • 125g cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 250g crabmeat, flaked

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:35min 

  1. Bring a large saucepan of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain. Keep warm and covered.
  2. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and cook until garlic releases its aroma; about 2 minutes, being careful not to let the garlic brown.
  3. Stir in the flour, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper. Reduce heat and cook, stirring constantly for about 2 minutes. Add the milk and cream then stir over medium heat until slightly thickened, about 3 minutes.
  4. Add the cream cheese and Parmesan cheese to the sauce and stir until cheeses melt and mixture is smooth. Mix in the crabmeat and continue cooking until crabmeat is heated through; about 3 minutes.
  5. Divide the fettucine between 2 plates or bowls and top with the crab sauce.
