This was a) stupidly delicious, and b) so...excessive it took me three days before I could bring myself to look at the picture I took so I could make this post. I think I had some toast and salad the next day, but it's kind of a blur.
4 tablespoons butter
4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 cups heavy cream (or half & half if you wuss out)
1/2 cup (or more to taste) grated Parmesan cheese
Salt and white pepper to taste
6 to 8 ounces cooked snow crab meat, cut into chunks*
Melt the butter in a saucepan. Stir in the flour, and cook briefly until the mixture looks sandy. Do NOT let it color.
Wisk in the heavy cream, and stir until the mixture forms a thick sauce.
Stir in the cheese, and season to taste. Don't miss out on the dash of cayenne, it's good. Simmer for a few minutes to blend the flavors, and stir in the crab meat. Too thick? Add a splash of your pasta water.Cook only until the crab is heated through, toss with your freshly drained pasta and get down to the business of entering a food coma.
*Mine was flakier, and sort of dissolved into the sauce. Still really good though.
