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
  • Instructions
  1. In a large saucepan, cook the pasta in salted boiling water until al dente.
  2. Drain pasta in a colander and set aside. Reserve ½ cup of the pasta cooking water.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Add 1-2 Tablespoons of Dirty Good Original, to taste.
  6. 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.
  7. Add the crabmeat and Parmesan to the cream sauce and stir to blend.
  8. 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).
  9. Taste and adjust seasoning with more Dirty Good Original, if needed.
  10. Serve pasta in shallow wide pasta bowls, garnished with remaining parsley, chives and serve immediately.
  11. Possible Tasty Additions: Any shellfish, Jalapenos
