This pasta is ridiculous. Splurge on some King Crab and put it in a meal where a little goes a long way. Be prepared for folks to ask for your autograph.
- ½ pound linguine
- Kosher salt
- 1 Tablespoon olive oil
- 2 large minced shallots
- 6 minced garlic cloves
- ½ cup Prosecco. Drink the rest with the meal!
- 2 Tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves, divided
- 2 Tablespoons chopped fresh chives, divided
- 2 Tablespoons of Dirty Good Original
- ½ Teaspoon of Dirty Good Censored
- 1½ cups heavy cream
- 2 pounds King Crab (defrosted, no need to heat), shuck the meat out carefully
- 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan
- In a large saucepan, cook the pasta in salted boiling water until al dente.
- Drain pasta in a colander and set aside. Reserve ½ cup of the pasta cooking water.
- In a large (14-inch) saute pan, heat the olive oil and saute the shallots, Dirty Good Censored and garlic until softened and fragrant, about 1 minute.
- Add the Prosecco, 1 tablespoon of the parsley and 1 tablespoon of the chives and cook, stirring, until wine is nearly evaporated, about 30 seconds.
- Add 1-2 Tablespoons of Dirty Good Original, to taste.
- Add the heavy cream and bring to a soft boil for 1-2 min and reduce heat to medium until cream is reduced to a consistency thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, about another 2 minutes.
- Add the crabmeat and Parmesan to the cream sauce and stir to blend.
- Add the drained pasta (or combine all the pot the pasta was made in) and cook over low heat, tossing to thoroughly combine, until pasta is warmed through. (Add a bit of the reserved pasta cooking water if necessary to thin sauce).
- Taste and adjust seasoning with more Dirty Good Original, if needed.
- Serve pasta in shallow wide pasta bowls, garnished with remaining parsley, chives and serve immediately.
- Possible Tasty Additions: Any shellfish, Jalapenos
